beautiful downtown

although I came for work, I took some days off to know the city. But I couldn't do it very well. Anyway I ll be going soon again, the headquarters of the company are in Harvey :)

I didn't know about it, but there is a Peruvian guy working at the company ;) He has been living in the States for long, so he was glad when he was told another Peruvian was joining the company.

After working the whole week, I went out with Tom and Charlotte (his girlfriend). We went to downtown in order to know the city. I found the city very nice. The Frenchquarter was so beautiful. It was funny finding the streets names written in French and in Spanish. Wow! This city had been influenced by different cultures until today.

We started taking a walk in the Riverwalk - a mall - and watched the Mississipi river. Next time I have to take a cruise. Then we kept on walking throught the city and visiting some art galleries. There are so great things to see there :) Not only the architecture of the city is great, but also all the art.  We visited the City  Hall, Cathedral, French Market...

Ok, Tom didn't want let me go, before going to Pat O'Briens and having the traditional Hurricane, hahaha. It was tasty and I kept the glass as a souvenier. I had to pack it carefully to protect it. I did a good job! My glass arrived save to Lima ;)

It got dark and I had to go back to the hotel and sleep. I had to work the day after...
