If you haven't visited my blog before, this is where I talk/whine about the ups and downs of residency and graduate school life. Welcome! Jeff is a 5th year Orthopaedic surgery resident, and I'm a 5th year Neuroscience PhD student. We live in New Orleans and absolutely LOVE it! We're sad to be moving this summer after we both graduate, but are excited for what's next.
Speaking of New Orleans, the city just hosted a little thing called the Superbowl this past weekend. No big deal, right?! It's great to be a 5th year and have most weekends off!
You would think with the busy life Jeff leads that he would want to relax on his days off, right? Whenever I have a crazy week, I want nothing more than to become one with a Netflix, a glass of wine, and my couch all weekend. But Jeff is the complete opposite- he wants to go, go, GO on his days off.
So, we made the trek down to the French Quarter on Saturday to see the sights. It was no small feat considering most streets were pedestrian only for the weekend. It was wonderful to see so many out of town fans enjoying the city as much as we do, even if they weren't wearing Saints jerseys ;)

The park along the riverfront was lined with food tents, stages featuring local musicians, and various activities hosted by Superbowl sponsors. We ambled into the French Quarter and watched street performers painted all in silver posing as statues and amazing guitarists and violinists playing for tips on the corners (a la the HBO show Treme). This is what I love about New Orleans! Every day is a festival down here, and I couldn't help but wonder what these Baltimoreans must think. I had a feeling the San Fran fans were a little more used to these types of "eccentricities."
So congrats to all you Ravens fans out there!
But, Who Dat?!! There's always next year!
