I recently celebrated a milestone birthday, and on my bucket list of things to do was:

1. Visit the New Orleans French Quarter and stay on Bourbon Street.

2. Go to Niagara Falls, Canada.

Before I left to go on my celebrating trips, I saw on the news that New Orleans was the dirtiest city, and it is, and I’m very ashamed of it.

The state and New Orleans city officials need to at least sweep the streets and power wash out the smell and dirt.

The very next day I flew to Niagara Falls, Canada. It was beautiful and spotless. I am a proud American, but would visit Canada again before I would spend my dollars in New Orleans again.
