What a disaster

It looks like I spoke too soon about things turning out OK for New Orleans. Instead, things keep getting worse. This is really sad.

I could have went to New Orleans earlier this year on a work-related trip. My first reaction was "New Orleans?! I can do that...wait, what I am supposed to do there?". In the end, I did not go, it was too far from Japan for me to be worthwhile, but I wish I had gone now.

When I first started working in the US, it was one of the first places I went on a business trip and I loved it (did not get much work done, however). As for what I remember about it, I will stop there: there are probably millions of better blog entries by people recounting their favourite stories of the city - you should go read those. Anyway, New Orleans will be back, but it looks like it will take a long time to recover/rebuild. That is a tragedy.
