Day 39 – New Orleans

—— Converted from outline form: 2013-9-19 ——

This day I went shopping a bit. Went to a “voodoo” store and got a small voodoo doll for $40. I have absolutely no idea what happened to this voodoo doll.

While walking around downtown some guy approached me, and tried just a friendly chat approach to getting something out of me. He walked with me for a few blocks and we talked casually, and I didn’t feel threatened by him though I was completely expecting him to ask for something. I think at some point we started talking about smoking marijuana, and I informed him that I didn’t do that and never had, and I think soon afterwards he excused himself.

This evening was actually my last at the hostel, as I had booked a Greyhound bus to San Antonio. We had a Voodoo extravaganza, which apparently was so good that I don’t recall it one bit.

So at 1:30 a.m. or around then I went to the front desk of the hostel to call a cab. I picked up my bags, said my last goodbyes to Margret and left. Y’know I did get her contact information, and I believe I even tried to contact her on two occasions, but didn’t hear back from her.

Talked to the cab driver about all that happened, and tipped him $2 out of the $10 fee. Got my luggage tagged, sat, and waited for the bus. I got up to spend $0.50 on an airplane video game, since I kind of like those ones, but I died pretty fast. The bus was then loaded and I got on. There weren’t many people so I got two entire seats to myself, which helped to sleep. The bus was supposed to leave at 2:35 a.m. but I think it left a bit later than that. I couldn’t see anything out the window, but knowing how Texas and highway 10 is I doubt there was too much to see. Slept.
