Welcome to New Orleans? and all the parentheses

Standard

What a strange night….

After trying (very unsuccessfully) to meet up with a friend, we ended up spending $40 on a not-buzz (damn expensive bars) then walking back to our car to find it locked within the parking lot. No signs about hours, overnight parking, anything. After trying in every way possible (again very unsuccessfully) to free our new little home (thanks for naught, parking company), we hopped over the gate and trapped ourselves in with our car for the night. We finally got the New Orleans police to come out this morning – though they hung up on us last night after “not being able to find” us – and were released from the city’s public parking cage.

Here’s to our first uncomfortable night in our little Geo! I’m super glad we were at least able to get to it. THAT woulda sucked.

Hopefully today will be a little more fruitful :)

About claireaudient

North Carolina girl, born and raised, though now I consider Vermont to be home as well. I guess you could say I'm a migrant gypsy farmer, if you were prone to saying such things. I've played the whole society game; I've been to three different colleges, have an Associate's Degree (in Liberal Studies, or something like that), and have worked more restaurant jobs than I care to admit. Through a curious series of events, however, I've formed a different perspective on what life means to me. Instead of slaving away at a job I hate to eke out a mediocre life staring at a shiny screen, I'm living out my dream to travel while learning organic farming and sustainability practices. It's not always easy, but leaving the comforts of routine to experience the wonders of the universe was a choice I will never regret. <3
