|i went with a blue one!|
new orleans! my first visit and my first impressions:
loved the energy of this big city with rich roots and culture.
big attitudes but friendly! the food wasn't as good as i
anticipated. our best (and cheapest) meal was a pizza
at a sports bar. but the cafe au lait and beignets were terrific!
the rats were bigger than oklahoma prairie dogs -
especially those living close to cafe du monde. :)
we walked, we sweat, we blistered. we drank lots of water,
and little alcohol. the strawberry daquiri tasted like a
slushy from a convenience store.
tried a strawberry covington beer -
a very interesting brew.
the audubon butterfly garden and insectarium was spectacular!
enjoyed the art galleries and shops.
it rained on the last night. enjoyed a full-moon throughout.
felt energy from the mighty mississippi river.
beautiful oaks, magnolia and palm trees.
oh the cemeteries were creepy cool!
