Streets in New Orleans

When we arrive in New Orleans to see the the Welcome Parade for the NFL Saints, the traffic was already bad. Some streets were closed and it was not a smart decision when we park at the 4th floor of the hotel because it was hard to drive out from the area. The streets were packed by motorists and it was a slow moving out from the city where more than 300K people were there who witnessed the event.It was below 30 degrees at that time and it was really chilly. I enjoyed the parade, the Saints came by but, after all the preparation, seeing them in a flash seems not worth it. Better to see them at the comfort of the house on TV monitor, I guess.Anyway, we park at the Intercontinental Hotel and we just walk down the streets and waiting for the parade. The streets are jam packed with people so, imagine how the parade pass by this area. Well, they did and most of us who do not want to get crushed by the crowd had to stay away from this area. The crowd was interesting though. I had fun looking at the families and people with friends around. There are weird people in costume, name it and you will find it here. This is New Orleans and anything is possible.
