An afternoon drive around Uptown

First off, I’m psychic.

Yesterday, Wesley and I called about 20 places looking for a Wii Fit Plus with a balance board before giving up (because they were all out of stock) and just Google searching places to call in the morning.

Then, last night I dreamt that there were Wii Fit Pluses in stock at the Wal-Mart on Tchoupitoulas. When we called them this morning – they did.

So after picking that up this morning, we decided to go for a drive with my film camera and get to know our neighborhood a little better.

This was purely an observational mission, but some of the types of places I didn’t realize were in Uptown: a monastery, many historic-looking schools and some type of factory, to name a few.

We also ran into some interesting buildings, such as a bar with crazy signs on it (see picture) and a very ironic run-down architectural school.

See pictures below for some of the best sights from our drive. Enjoy!
