    If you love old cemeteries, you'd both love New Orleans. Come in summer when only the craziest of tourists comes (oy, the heat), and they won't be so crowded.

    That'd be awesome! I'll bring the ouija board.

    Ahh... summer in NOLA.

    As long as you aren't on Bourbon Street you don't have to dodge puke in the gutters.
    Though I did spend plenty of time slumming there... or nearby.

    I was stationed at Bilouxi, MS and preferred spending my weekends in NOLA where I could go about my business unrecognized by fellow military members. Hehe

    Cool. Of all the things into which I've delved over my lifetime, Ouija scares me the most. But if you can guarantee that only benevolent spirits will crawl up my arms and into my brain, I'll try it again. *chuckles like one in a dark grave yard*

    I knew I still had these. Check out the "feel like" temps from summer 2011 - my first summer here. I thought I'd moved to hell.







    Fortunately, I stuck it out, and last summer was considerably more normal. I had seriously thought of packing up the car and heading to Pittsburgh, which had been my original destination until I took a detour to see N'Orleans.

    G, I figure one of two things will happen.

    1. I'll fly there. NZ looks so beautiful and apparently, the people just rock! If I can stash the cash, I'd love to just sublet my apt for a few months and do NZ, Italy, Spain, and India. That's a dream, but NZ and one other place is totally doable.

    2. You'll love the U.S. so much and have so much fun, you'll just have to return to see the southern part of the country. (Fly into LAX. See Paleobird and Derp. Drive through Vegas and eat at 5-star restaurants. Maybe even renew your vows with an Elvis impersonator officiating. Maybe hit Arizona for a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. Then to New Orleans for debauchery in the Quarter, a ferry ride across the Mississippi, and some cemetery tours. And a visit with me of course. Then off to Florida for Disney World (might as well see it once), a visit to Cori, the Everglades, Key West, and Miami. Fly out of Miami International.)

    Either way, I stand by my prediction.

    The thing most people don't realize about NOLA, and along the coast and down south here is that Yes, it's hot. But it's also THICK. It can be hot kind of like that out in AZ, NM, or Las Vegas... So Cal... but not the thickness. The HUMIDITY.

    The kind of heat where it's already 90degrees and 98% humidity at 8am... you walk outside and can literally feel the air wrap around you like a damp blanket. You can feel the heaviness in your lungs when you breathe.

    And there is no such thing as cool... sweat for cooling off doesn't really work in humidity because the air is too moist. You are just sweaty and hot, and any air that blows is just damp and hot. And it never cools off at night, so there is no reprieve unlike up north a bit.

    All that said... I adjusted to it quite quickly and I like it.
    I moved to Bilouxi, MS from TN in 1997... and have only lived away from the Gulf Coast/FL area for 1 year since then.
    I spent that year cold and miserable in Central Cali near Lompoc/Santa Maria on Vandenburg AFB.
    I prefer being hot to being cold. Heat is good! LOL

    I have to spend my first summer in New Jersey, and I'm getting ready for that kind of humidity too (used to live in East Texas)... Last year a friend from Tamil Nadu (southernmost India) said it was the hottest and stickiest he's ever been here in central NJ. So far it's only gotten up to 80ish for two days this year, sixties these days. Thoughts Joanie?
