Easter Weekend is over. Work is starting all over. Yes, you are reading right. I have to work. My time here in New Orleans is not vacation only, but a couple of days I have to work, too. Remotely!

That is why I sat down on my little sundeck and got some work done. It is a critical time for the company I work for. It is not only month close but also the end of a quarter. Remote work was the only possibility to stay away from the office for such a long time. Oh yes, sometimes some creative compromises need to be agreed.
As soon as I finished work, I could continue my sightseeing tour. My ticket, which I bought yesterday, for the sightseeing bus is good for three days, so I just hopped on the next bus and went straight to the Garden District. I also wanted to visit the Lafayette cemetery as I have done with the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, four years ago.
Just in case, any of those tours can be booked at City Discovery. Great deals and everything you need to discover a city conveniently.
I did not check the opening hours, I always forget to do so, beforehand. Because of that, I stood in front of closed gates. Lafayette Cemetery opens from 9 a.m.-2.30 p.m.
Great. I was too late for the cemetery, so I only walked through the streets of the Garden District and wondered about the beautiful architecture, the elegant cast-iron balconies, and sometimes colorful facades.
While walking and wondering, I found a super delicious ice-cream and pastry shop on Magazine St, named Sucré. Guess what: they had a real éclair with creole vanilla cream! I could not resist.
Soon, I caught one of the last sightseeing buses and returned to French Quarter. Again strolling the streets, today with a different route, I mad my way back home.
That is the great thing about traveling slower than usual. I do not have to put everything at once into my day but can decide day by day what I want to discover next.
Pin for later!
The weather forecast says that it will rain more or less the whole day. Besides of another day of working remotely, I am not sure what I want to do the rest of the day. I think I will figure that out tomorrow.
