So I went home a few weeks ago to take care of business (that will be another post) and go to Mardi Gras with my sister. We had so much fun. We stayed at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino, drank, gambled, ate delicious food, and just watched the parades and crowds. We flew in on Spirit which is a whole crazy, messy story in itself. Basically, people were fighting on the plane. Then we came back on Amtrak which is another story. Amtrak is SO slow and made long stops for no reason or they were fixing something on the tracks. You CANNOT ride Amtrak after being overseas and riding a fast train. It took us 8 hours to get home but at least it was cheap, we could walk around, and the food was actually delicious. I don’t know if I would ride Amtrak again.
