The weather is not cooperating in New Orleans, it is raining. And not just some drizzle, it is pouring. Well, we dig out our rain gear and off we go to explore the historic downtown. Not what we imagined it would be like, but it's still nice. It is a ghost town in the rain, just a few tourists strolling through the streets. The famous French Quarter is definitely worth seeing and the fact that the stores and pubs are closed does not bother us a bit. Colorful buildings with cast-iron balconies full of tropical plants definitely attract your attention. I'm pretty sure it would be a totaly different atmosphere during Mardi Gras. But it is COVID time and rainy, too.
