Un-Touristy Tourism

So the nice thing about staying with locals was that we got to do lots of New Orleans things, only some of which were touristy. We of course did Cafe du Monde.

That's right, Eddy is nerding up the FQ. But we also had some amazing parade experiences! Laura and Kijai took us to Pride and to an amazing second line!

In second lines, parade goers march alongside the parade and dance along to the brass band. It was great fun, but also really freakin' hot.

To keep parade goers happy, there were plenty of mobile coolers and also truck bars.

If ever you have the opportunity to see a second line in NOLA, do it. And bring ice water.
