New Orleans

We went to New Orleans today. We took the Twin Span from Slidell to New Orleans East. Many of you probably have seen the Twin Span on T.V. It's that large bridge across Lake P. with many sections missing.



Twin Span. Only one side open.



Getting to the Twin Span



Downtown New Orleans from the High Rise



Getting closer



Behind a Porche



The Superdome..

We just basically drove around the city. Fast as ****ing hell. On the way back Jeromy decides to play with some black people in an old car. Them bitches were chasing after us.


...Every car in the New Orleans car lots..... are a sad site to see.. we even saw a house in the projects with "HELP" written on the roof

I hear thats messed up over there. Serious question. Thats a 96/97-00 type design. My mom had an HX, and I dont picture it going 100 let alone over that.

Everywhere you look, business's are just wiped out.. And I dont see how anyone could want to work there right now.. Once you get off the bridge, the smell is horrible

I doubt anybody would want to work there, but they have to make money, and that's probably their only option

If you want to get a job there, now is the time. The Burger King is paying $8.00 an hour and offering a $6,000.00 bonus for every worker. Every place that is ok for busniess is paying way above minimum wage and offering bonus. And my job is secure. They cant fire me because they need me. I've taken countless days off and they havent fired me yet.
