Ive lived in Maryland, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Utah and Ive visited many other states and stayed for weeks at a time. Never have I seen such filth, scum, and just completely trash worth of a population then here in New Orleans. People ask me where I live and I tell them Southeastern LA ....I cannot wait to move to California. Good riddance Louisiana.. Katrina, BP...theres just nothing going right for this state anymore.
And what about the Mardi Gras then?
I've only been to NYC and Miami/Fort Lauderdale more than 10 years ago. But we're planning to visit the USA in the oncoming years(but first the World Cup Football 2014 in Brasil) , New Orleans is a no go then?
