first drinks when we just arrived!!!
I went to the office early in the morning. The boys didn't arrive until 10:30am. They were partying until 3am and were really tired, haha. Therefore they didn't want to go out today and drove back to the hotel early in  the afternoon. Would I stay alone and bored in my room? No way! I have already made plans with a TB: Shannon! He lives in New Orleans and would be able to meet me and hang out, yeah!

At 6:30pm he arrived to the hotel to pick me up. I was talking on the phone, so he had to wait me for a while, hehe. While I was getting ready we started to chat a bit. Well, further details in my other blog, meeting him deserves an entrance there too :) Ok, I was ready to leave now.
ok, I had to work too haha
Shannon suggested me to go to the French Quarter, yay!

I have already been there, but not this time. Well, I was there with my customers and boss but it doesn't count as party, hehe. My boss is always taking care of me as a jealous dad, haha. In our way Shannon was showing me around and pointing some buildings. It's unbelieavable. This was my 5th time in the city, but don't know many places, but of course I know where to go to party, haha. We parked and started walking to Bourbon Street.

We arrived to the famous Bourbon Street and in order to get in the mood, we went to one of the tons of Daiquiri's shops to get our first drinks. I got a Hurricane and Shannon got a Vodka. I was about saying "Cheers!", when Shannon surprised me saying "Salud!" haha. We had been talking about where to have dinner, but better walked around and then we would decide, haha.
thirsty?
At the end we never left the French Quarter, haha. We were walking through Bourbon Street and Shannon was pointing me different places he uses to hang out with his friends and I recognized some places I have been too, haha. It was hilarious.

Now we kept on walking and went to Jackson Square. It looked so lovely at night. I was so happy about being able to take tons of pics. I haven't been able to do it before, furthermore Shannon loves to take pics too, hehe. We were hanging out and having a great time. I was telling him about my previous times in New Orleans. And I commented him a friend couldn't believe I haven't had a hand grenade. Shannon said, we would fix that inmediately, so we went to Tropical Island, where this drinks were originated. Well, it's a secret what this drink has, haha.
quiet


We grabbed our drinks to go and keep on walking around, checking some jazz clubs and art. We found beautiful cottages and the full moon was perfect. There were plenty of opportunities to take great shots. Time for a refill. We went back to Tropical Island and got another drink, but I don't remember the name of it, ughhhh. We were a bit tired of walking so we went upstairs and took a sit in a balcony. We were just chilling out and Shannon was telling me about the city and where he'd like to move. Living near this area might be so cool!!!!

Ok, I think before going it'd be a good idea to eat something to suck the alcohol, haha. A slice of pizza was perfect, haha. That slice was huge! so it was more than enough for us both :) Shannon drove me back to the hotel around midnight - a Cinderella, haha.
And what about my custormes and my boss? well they were sleeping and recovering from last night. They have no idea I was hanging out in the French Quarter, haha.
