New Orleans, it has been fun

This past week, I had the pleasure of meeting my coworkers in the beautiful city of New Orleans, Louisiana*.

We stayed in a pretty awesome house in the Garden District. Here’s a look at some of the house:

 

Everything here is really close and within walking distance. However, if you feel like it’s too far, you can always catch a street car. Here we are traveling on the street car:

Along the walk we got to see some beautiful homes:

 

We arrived just a few days after the annual Mardi Gras celebration, so beads were everywhere!

While here, we decided to visit a cemetery. I found this interesting because of the difference in how they do cemeteries here, it was kind of neat:

 

When I think of New Orleans, I tend to think of Jazz music and seafood. Since I’m not a big seafood eater, I tried to enjoy the food the best I could:

 

My thoughts on NOLA overall, it was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to come back. See you in October!

*Those of you who are catching up, I work for Automattic and we are a completely distributed company, working from our homes all over the world. A few times a year we gather together to work on projects and spend time as a team.

Automattic runs in NOLA

This week my team is in New Orleans, Louisiana for a meetup. Everyday myself and two of my coworkers have been going out for runs. 

You may have heard of my coworker, Joe, he’s got a great blog called Crazy Running Guy. He started his meetup out like he starts every one-running from the airport, to our meetup location. This time it was about a 15 mile run, in the dark! 

I haven’t had that crazy of a run with him but we have seen some pretty cool things including the Mighty Mississippi and even some giraffes! 

   

      

So if you think every computer nerd is lazy and sits behind their computer screen all day, meet part of the Automattic runners:
