Day 64 – From NOLA To HOTX…
Even the baristas in the coffee shop weren’t fully awake as they managed to give us two drinks each. Not wanting to look a gifthorse in the mouth we tried to make a quick getaway before they realized their error. Trip lesson no.361: Never rush a Brit pouring milk into her tea, it will not end well. I have no game when it comes to crime as I clumsily proceeded to make a scene and spill liquids all over the place. Let it be noted nothing free comes without a price - sticky milk hands and sleeves being mine!
Before departing New Orleans we drove over to the Garden District to rub shoulders with the millionaires and their mansions. The purpose for this stop-off was to see the ‘Benjamin Button’ house. In the light of day it is nothing like the rundown home for the elderly that the movie makes it out to be! Sightseeing done for the day, we made our way out of town (via the Superdome!) and got on the road.
