Nawlins :)

It's official! I'm going to New Orleans for my "Continued Development Training" - "Disaster Relief" but unfortunately we aren't getting down and dirty with the grime. Instead hotel(l?)ing it up!

I leave Tuesday May 23* at 6:15 am (airport at 5, yikes) and return Friday, May 26 at 11:56 pm. I fly through Atlanta, which in normalcy would be way out of the way, but this is the airline system, so it makes perfect sense.
I get into New Orleans at 9 am, but I can't register till 2. Somehow my travel is going to be arranged but I have no idea how. I'm a little scared at the thought of navigating New Orleans on my own. I wonder if any other VISTAs in Tallahassee are going?

As for actually what I am going to be doing there, I expect several training sessions and seminars. Fun fun.

I don't get back till late Friday night, so that means I have to go to my SCL memorial day celebration/meeting/party in St Augustine a day late -- assuming it's still happening. Matt? Nate? do either of you know?

*May 23 is my half-birthday! I will be 21 1/2!

Congratulations. Definitely check with whoever is arranging the travel on transportation from the airport to the hotel, etc. I think you've got a good idea looking for other local VISTAs; safer and more fun to have a group.

Have a good time:)

It was a beautiful place. I'm sure it still is. Will you be in the hotel the whole time? I hope you get a chance to see some of the damage and what they're doing to fix it. Call or IM if you want suggestions for places to see.

You can spell it correctly, that's an important first step.

I have to say I'm jealous of anyone that gets to go down there. Definitely take some time to see the more affected areas if you can.
