A teeny peek at 3 days in New Orleans...

Steve and I just returned from sneaking in a couple of days in New Orleans, just like we did last year at this time.   Fun, fun, fun.   While the city is not for everyone, as the debauchery can dabble into the extremes, I always tell friends that you must visit NOLA at least once in your lifetime.

The energy is electric...

The Cajun-inspired cuisine is delectable (red beans and rice on Bourbon Street)......

The history is well- preserved and rich (interior of St. Louis Cathedral)...

And the people watching is never a bore, let's put it that way ;)...

New Orleans doesn't pretend to be something that it is not.  The city, plain and simple, is centered around a deeply-rooted culture based on tradition, history, heritage, indulgence, personal expression, and living life to the fullest. What is not to love about that? 

NOLA is bursting at the seams with talent and delicious experiences.  In fact, the energy is so palpable that you can't help but soak it in around every corner and behind every door...

Contagious, I tell you!
