New Orleans to Atlanta by train


There’s not too much to report from yesterday; I was on the train almost all day, from 9 am to 11 pm. I’ll report more later about today in Atlanta. But the clouds were pretty breathtaking for most of the day on the train yesterday, so I wanted to at least share some imagery from that voyage, as well as a few photos from before and after.

The bike lanes throughout New Orleans often contained reminders of the recent Mardi Gras celebrations, which I found amusing.

The train station in New Orleans had a cool sculpture out front.

In Atlanta, there was a cool bike-and-pedestrian bridge across the freeway immediately adjacent to the train station. And before too long, I passed a beautiful old church as well. (I also saw one on that fateful night I arrived in New Orleans, but didn’t end up posting it.)

Unfortunately, I had written down the wrong address for my first Atlanta Warmshowers host, so he ended up having to come and pick me up from his old apartment to take me to the new one. I appreciated his willingness to offer that, especially given the late hour. (I think it was about 11:30 by the time I got to the wrong place.) Furthermore, he will be taking a vacation to Mexico himself in a few days! The generosity, and flexibility, of Warmshowers hosts never ceases to amaze me.
