BR and I took a road trip to New Orleans this past weekend for the Jazz and Heritage Festival. We met up with our friends Jeanne and Greg from Oakland, as well as the Louisiana crew.
This was BR's first trip to New Orleans in a wheelchair. On the whole, things went well. We arrived at 4am on Friday looking a bit like the Beverly Hillbillies after being on the road for 10 hours. The room at the Iberville Suites had just enough space to accommodate the hospital bed and wheelchair.
The streets and sidewalks of the French Quarter have never been known as consistent. Potholes, missing sections of bricks, and general unevenness make navigating in a wheelchair quite the adventure. We shot a video while walking down Bourbon Street this past Saturday evening to give you a feel.
