Bourbon Street

A shot in New Orleans' famous and historic street, an entertainment megaplex with a mardi gras atmosphere featuring live shows, restaurants, a sports bar, nightclub, strip clubs, beer garden, and special events, as well as t-shirt and souvenir shops. Though largely quiet during the day, Bourbon Street comes alive at night with music, peoples and entertainments. The streets are packed with tourists drinking Hurricanes, Hand Grenades and Huge Ass Beers - a large plastic cup of draft beer marketed to tourists at a low price. I saw all kinds of peoples from a wide-eyed tourists to red-eyed drunks (I just saw two that were high), gays, lesbians, street entertainers, and you name any temptations to the flesh and it is in Bourbon street. I saw one woman who dared came out to the streets on Saturday night as we were touring along the streets with margarita in hand, in her "stripped" attire, and some night clubs' doors were open that you could see what were happening inside. They had so much fun. It was quiet an experience, made my eyes expressionless for a while. But it was so awesome to see such old structures to still exist amidst the modern establishments and to just observe the people walking back and forth along the length of the street, the famous Bourbon street, a very alive street that recovered from the fury of the catastrophic event. Oh yeah, the food is always great.
