Are you a really good brother or are you that stupid?
I must say that you have to be both, to drive from Austin to New Orleans by yourself to only stay four days (2 of which I spent driving). My sister went to New Orleans because The Acoustical Society of America was meeting at the creole city and I figured it was a good idea for us to meet over there. We stayed at a very well located hotel (The Chateau DuprÃ©) right in the french quarter so we never had to drive anywhere. We walked the french quarter and the garden district, had good food at different places, visited the Lafayette cemetery, took the St. Charles Streetcar, had coffee and beignets at Cafe Du Monde and Hand grenades at Bourbon St.
