O yes school is almost over with and then begins SUMMERTIME BABY!!! I love summertime, not just because I don’t have to sit in a classroom for about 3 months, but because you get to have an opportunity to take a really good vacation. I plan on taking advantage of my time and take a whole week or two vacation back to my hometown, New Orleans for my oldest brother birthday. It should be fun and I haven’t been to New Orleans since last year so its about time for another visit. If anybody’s looking for a place to visit that you’re going to love, I encourage them to go to New Orleans and enjoy all the festivities. So much to do there and I got a couple of helpful tips that I think will be very beneficial to anybody who plans to visit:
Tip 1. Please wear shorts and preferably a shirt that’s sleeveless. It gets very,very,very,very,very,(takes a breath), very, very HOT!!! in New Orleans during the summer. Sometimes the temperatures can hit the triple digits so also a good pair of sandals can be beneficial also. If u got a hat that provide you a little bit of shade, that will also work and if your car has no AC, you might as well just take the bus everywhere because you will not make it far.
Tip 2. Bring a camera and make sure it’s ready at all times. If I had a nickel every time I seen something at Mardi Gras or just at a big gathering, I would probably be a rich man. There’s so many interesting people and so much rich history around that you’re going to have your head on a swivel looking at everything so take as many pictures as you can.
Tip 3. This is probably one of the most important rules right here and it will definitely save you an altercation or any kind of arguments: DON’T SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THE SAINTS AROUND DRUNK PEOPLE!!!!!! This may sound like a crazy or dumb tip but if my knowledge is correct about the people of New Orleans and I’m referring to the majority, yea it can happen so to make sure that you get the full wonderful experience, don’t say it.
So if you plan on making a trip to New Orleans, I hope these tips help you and I hope everybody enjoys their summer wherever they may go.
