    Day 1.138 – Welcome to New Orleans!

    I know it’s not very cool repeating what cool people have already said about cool places, but New Orleans really is a cool place. So vibrant, so alive, so much to visually feast on.

    I Like This Impala! Note the plate...

    It’s not that other US cities are totally devoid of them, but New Orleans definitely has its share of…umm…interesting people who live a little left (or under/above or wherever) of the centre, who march to their own drum, who may but probably don’t have a place to live, people that would be categorized as weirdos in other parts of the country (I’m assuming here), but who somehow all seem to fit in here in New Orleans.

    A Local Classic: Beignets and café au lait at the Café Du Monde, New Orleans.

      Hi Nicolai,

      Again, great photos! You really captured the pulse of NOLA and it looks like you took the time to see it all. No harm in relaxing or to just “sit a spell” as we say in the South. Enjoy the iced tea and mint juleps!

      Thanks, Lisa. Glad you think I caught the NOLA pulse thru the photos. The city is so wonderfully diverse and varied that – as a visitor – it’s sort of hard to get a feeling if you’re missing something crucial in the hunt for the spirit of the city.

      Surely, my visit is just a superficial one and there’s so much I haven’t seen/found out about New Orleans. But I love it here, nonetheless.

      …oh, minus the rain that keeps coming in buckets here too this morning. Think I’ll “have” to postpone my hitting-the-road-again… 🙂
