I attended the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting held at New Orleans (NOLA), and presented a poster regarding boron isotope measurements of planktonic foraminifera.
Convention center was really large laterally, so we walked several km a day every day!
This was my second time attendance to AGU, and I really enjoyed the science talks (and ABITA beers!).
During the stay I walked around the city, and touched exotic and unique atmospheres. It was interesting that even in the USA, French, Spanish, and African cultures mix in a very complex way. Food was unique, but really good.

Jazz was really awesome and we enjoyed live plays every night, everywhere.
|Musical Legend's Park|
The best jazz was that performed at Preservation Hall, so that I visited there twice!
It looked like ad lib occasionally, but all sounds were harmonized perfectly! I was so excited.
|World War II Museum|
In a final day I went to VooDoo Museum as well. The room was very narrow and had a really extra-ordinal air.
During one-week-stay, I saw a lot aspects of the USA.
