i haven’t left this city since i went to tampa.
that was like 2016-ish.
so when a friend hit me up last week and said:
“Pack a bag and be at the airport for a 7am flight.
just bring a little spending money cause i covered everything else…”
…i couldn’t turn it down.
where in the world was i going?
NOLA for 24 hours.
it was a very short and spontaneous weekend trip,
but it was much needed to see a different kind of scenery.
i bought my laptop in case i had some free time,
but i definitely didn’t even open the bag it was in.
when i was riding on the highway next to the super dome,
my mind replayed scenes from the news during hurricane katrina.
that was the same highway that got a reaction out of a “woke” kanye at the time.
the trip was a semi-mess even though i tried to make the best of it.
my friend wanted to get drunk and be a 19 college student again.
i wanted to experience more of the culture and eat the food.
we were on two separate pages.
i will say the locals of nola were so nice.
so different from what we experience up north.
here are a few shots and videos i captured during my short time there:
next time i go to nola,
i’m going to make sure its not during any big events.
i want a better itinerary and a full tour.
low-key: i’ll address more of my weekend during the next podcast.
