It went well. I didn't get to see much of New Orleans as I didn't have any additional time to do so. Walked around the arts area/antique district but never got over to the jazz clubs or see the older homes in the west/green.
Food was good, I tried a number of different places but didn't get to eat enough. I remember having some good crabcakes, quail and oysters at the Pellican Club, and would happily go back again.
I visited Harrahs casino and left with more money than I walked inside with. Things went better than expected.
Was a sad thing for me to see so many homeless people on the streets surrounding the streets around bourbon street. I must have seen over 60-70 people out on the street. Normally in New York city it would be older people, but most of them were younger and my age. Why there isn't a better public assistance program for them I have no idea. :^(
I would go back but in better weather. I wouldn't stay near bourbon street. Didn't get to see any sights I would have wished to :^(
