Hello everyone. I'm a Vietnamese student and this July I'm going to go to Alexandria 3 months. I participate in a program called Work and Travel in USA 2010. It means I will work at some fast food shops in Alexandria city, Louisiana to save money for travelling. Yep, I don't find much information of Alexandria in the Net. I hope all of you here - people who are living in Louisiana, help me. I want to know about the bus transportation (for ex: how much I spend to buy a ticket?), the people in Alexandria, the costs of living, the attractions. Is it easy for me to have a part time job in Alexandria? Where to buy cheap goods?
And one more thing, I will stay in New Orleans for 2 days before going to Alexandria (on Jule 3rd &4th). I don't have any friends there and don't want to take a hotel. Does the airport (Louis Armstrong Airport) has services like keeping luggage for passengers? And what should I do there?
First time going abroad, I'm really nervous. I really need your help
Thank you all

While I can't personally answer your specific questions about Alexandria, I'm confident others will be along to provide some good guidance.

I looked into your baggage storage issue and this is what I found on the airport's website:

Quote:
Baggage storage is available on the lower level between Baggage Claims 5 and 6. VIP Baggage Check Service is operated by Rush It Courier Service. Storage is available for regular and oversized items such as golf clubs, boxes, luggage, musical instruments, wheelchairs, etc. Rush It now offers full service cruise ship check-in from their Airport Office and can transport your luggage from the Airport to the Cruise Ship with advance check-in on the ship, leaving you more time to enjoy the Big Easy! 24 Hour Accessibility available upon request. For more information, please contact one of our baggage coordinators at (504) 471-0080.
I also want to compliment you on your English skills for someone who hasn't been abroad, as well as to wish you the best of luck in your job search. I hope this adventure of yours will provide many wonderful memories.

Safe travels!
