Peace babes xx
... some locals. They essentially told us that Bourbon st is great fun, but you're better off to spend one night there and get it out of your system. The consensus from the locals was that bourbon st has changed quite a lot and is too commercialised now with tourist attractions. It used to be great blues/jazz and local art and a lot quiter. Then someone came along and introduced numerous strip clubs and daiquiri bars at every corner.
So that's what we did, we spent ...
