Look what happened now...
Warning! This is a picture heavy post ( + another spooky story!)
This continues the December New Orleans trip.
As you can see from all these crazy photos we hung out on the balcony most of the time we were in the room. One evening we returned in the early evening to drop off our shopping loot and shower/change clothes before we went out to dinner. I was 1st and went out on the balcony while the others took their turns. I walked down the length of the balcony to look down and take photos (Like the one above). There were 3 rooms total that opened onto our shared balcony. I thought we were the only people checked in. As I walked past the doors (the curtains were opened) I looked inside to see if all the rooms were the same. And an older (Maybe 70-100 year old) woman was lying on the bed in the room next door.. I freaked out (I had just peeped HER! OMG!) and ran back to our side, feeling terribly guilty. Later we went out and yada, yada, you know. The next morning we are right back here for breakfast again.
And I mention to the girls what had happened and how embarrassed I was. They both look at me like WTF? And say, "There is no one staying in those rooms!" I'm like "yes, I saw her." Now it comes out that Both of them had checked the rooms too. (We are such tourists) and they were vacant. I recalled most of the incident, because I was so shocked at seeing someone. She was white, with short white hair, small frame. She had all her clothes on (Thank god) and was on top of (not under) the blankets. The TV was not on, nor did I see any luggage. So we ALL walked over to the room (the curtain was still open)...
And looked in again. (MAJOR PEEPERS!!) No one there, bed still made up and no luggage/cases. No one home. :o
Yikes! What the HELL!? Now they girls are all asking if she looked dead and shit? I'm like "No, of course not. She looked sleeping and modern day. Not like 1840's THAT I would have noticed." So of course we left right after that..
If you can afford it, do get a balcony room. Who knows what you will see!
I can't remb. which day now. Sorry.
What follows are Angelica's pictures. She went on a the Walking Ghost Tour and loved i!
She recommends it to anyone that wants to see the Quarter, learn about the history and not spend a fortune. :D
You know we almost never heard anything from the room next door. Well, we did hear odd knocking one night...But we all totally ignored that after the woman on the bed incident. :x
But the following night we had (real?) neighbors! 2 young guys (1 from Australia). That evening as Angelica and I were sitting on the balcony waiting on Char to get ready, the cute Aussie came out and chatted us up. Angelica was quite happy to scare the poor boy to death with the "lady sleeping on the bed " story in their room! Lol
There is one more day and the hotel review to go yet..so stay tuned.
I’m so ready to return! (Especially after the day I’ve had!) Spent the entire day in meetings and now I just want to chill by the fire. I’m too tried to even change clothes, lol. #BrainDead from work. :(
Catch you later-
