Tidbits from New Orleans  

I've never been anywhere like New Orleans before. I can't really explain it. It's a city with history and style and music and people with fierce loyalties to their hometown. It's also a city that still has a lot of pain and sadness from Katrina.  I know I was only there for a couple days but there's so much more to this town than just Bourban Street and the Saints.


It was really good to see Jess.


And I love to explore new cities.



I checked out some local talent


some local culture


a little history


and local traditions.  


There were lots of beads to throw 


And we caught a nice share.

Lots of parade shots and sightseeing shots HERE

I adore N'Awlins, and have managed to get back there every year or two over the past 20 years for the fun, music and great cooking. For the past five years, my SO and I have delighted in having a wonderful girlfriend who lives there; indeed, we've known her for longer than we know the city, and we've visited there with her pretty often even before she relocated into "the Big Easy."

Your nice photos and words are a lovely tribute to the place Katrina (and George W) couldn't kill.

Hugz, Justine
