Bourbon Street - well, we guess you "have" to see it. But we soon had enough. It was quite repulsive: bar after bar and vulgar tee-shirt shop after shop. Lots and lots of young people whose entire aim is to get as drunk as possible as quickly as possible. Many times the smell of vomit in the street. Yech!
Some people go to NOLA and never see anything beyong Bourbon Street. That's a crying shame because the city and it neighborhoods are so wonderful and to miss it is to miss New Orleans.
