New Orleans is a city in which “there is no reason not to drink.” Such a number of holidays, parades and parties that organise in this city I have not seen yet any where. By the way, because of this, the Americans called New Orleans “The Big Easy”, this name very clearly emphasises the free atmosphere of the city and the light-heartedness of its locals. During the day, the city looks like a normal metropolis, and in the evening turns into the kingdom of fun and debauchery.

One of my favorite things to do while traveling – meeting new interesting people. I already told you about some of them, today I want to talk about Katy Mayeaux.
With Katy, we met during “My Roses Experience Tour”. She is just as I came to visit Gardens of the American Rose Center in that day. After that we found each other in Facebook and Katy offered to help me to visit her city of Shreveport. It was a great idea, so I agreed without hesitation. Unfortunately, I met Katy, just a week before my departure from the United States. But trust me, even in this short time, we had a great time with her.
Roses… Idea to visit “Gardens of the American Rose Center” visited me often, but for various reasons I constantly postponed it. One day in the spring, finally I got into the car and drove there.
Gardens of the American Rose Center is located near the city of Shreveport, Louisiana. In May, in the southern part of America it is already quite hot, so I decided to go to there early in the morning, just to be sure I can take a walk easy and enjoy the view of roses.
As I already told, America and the Americans way of living is very different from the European. People, which cross the ocean, in order to see one of the youngest country in the world, will be surprised watching the life of Americans. Fun fact that, also Americans which traveling in Europe, surprised for the same arguments when they see the European way of living.
Recently in the book Amy Thomas «Paris, My Sweet» I read a funny moment, in which she said that the Europeans are very “cold” people, and that in the streets and cafes with her greets only the elderly, the others, overlooked Amy.

“Is there life beyond the ocean?” Or “Welcome to the USA!”
America – is a beautiful and vast country, full of contrasts and surprising phenomena. I don’t think that is also amazing for the Americans, but believe me, for the Russian people there is many fun and interesting.
