The first time I was near NOLA I bypassed it as I had a show dog with me, but I digress. The second time was about three years after Katrina and Rita. It was a ghost town. At noon I could find no restaurant open, no cab, bus, or trolly running. There were two bright spots. Walgreens, and a gas station. I was treated well and I learned a lot about the people.

The residents have grit, love, and big hearts. One of the best cookbooks I ever bought was from and of New Orleans.

The best advice I give is if you ae traveling alone, do stay in a well known hotel with vehicle security. Take hotel advice and you will have a grand time. As to dirty... well, all large towns on large bodies of water are dirty from NYC to NOLA, to Green Bay, to Chicago. to LA., it is what it is; Enjoy it.
