My hosts - a lovely couple with a lovely pet :)

Day 1: Officially this was my first day in New Orleans. I woke up really early in order to go to the office which is a bit far away from where I’m staying. I have to cross the big Lake Pontchartrain. They day was cool.

I was wearing my coat and gloves. In Austin and in Houston I was feeling silly about carrying the big coat, because it wasn’t that cool. But it was really useful in New Orleans. Maybe it wasn’t too bad, but for a Latin girl used to warm weather it was too much… brrrrrr.


I was working until 5 and then moved to Uptown with some friends. They are a lovely couple and she wanted me to stay at her house since my first time in the city, so this one was the perfect opportunity. Also they recently moved to a house just 2 blocks away from St. Charles, yeah!


We enjoyed a quiet evening, had some wine and cooked fish. It was the perfect way to start everything, just taking the things easy. Well, I have to accept, that since I arrived to the USA, I haven’t spent one single day without alcohol, mmmm.



Day 2: it was another office day. Just working. Well, I have to work. It was supposed to be the mainly purpose of my travel to the USA ;)

We had dinner at home, but went out for delicious ice cream nearby. They were just amazing! I wrote a review about them. Yummy!

I was just getting ready for the Mardi Gras experience coming soon.
