Ted's Big Perimeter Ride - Day 63




Short ride today to the Big Easy... My beloved found me a hotel (after three hours in a splendid coffeehouse) in the French Quarter, 30 yards off Bourbon Street. WOW, the afternoon was quiet, but as the sun went down the party people filled the streets. It was sensory overload; in a good party way. I had a wonderful dinner at the Acme Oyster House, and a full night of WOW.

What happens in New Orleans---Stays in Vegas!

A good portion of the roads from Houma to New Orleans are raised, functional, but at at what cost. Well, the cars need to be above the water (most of the time).
