The weeks are rolling by now and I have just over two weeks left before my flight home!
In these past two weeks a lot has changed; notably the weather/climate. The desert of western Texas is long gone and replaced by Louisiana’s humidity and water. The Gulf of Mexico, swamplands and rivers, including the Mississippi! This inevitably brings more animals into the area. The return of Mosquitos was a sudden annoyance, especially as I haven’t really had to deal with them since I was in Tajikistan! But also some much bigger animals that took me by surprise too!
I’ve spent the last three days in New Orleans and it’s been really great. Music and food everywhere. I would highly recommend it as a holiday destination. I did a walking tour round the city, a couple of museums which included one about the Mardi Gras festival and also a large section on Hurricane Katrina. I saw a gospel Christmas concert and also an amazing jazz performance in one of its birthplaces. And finally, I ate lots of fantastic food.
The video is longer than my normal videos (sorry!) – enjoy.
