New Orleans

When I went: June 2012

My time in New Orleans was only brief.  I was over on holiday seeing my friend who lives in Lousiana only an hour from New Orleans.  We took a day trip to the city so I could see what it was like.

We spent most of our time in the French Quarter and wondered around.  There was a lot of music and things going on.  We went for lunch and drinks on Bourbon Street and ate outside in a pretty court yard full of flowers, plants and trees. We then walked more of the streets and came across some markets selling all kinds of New Orleans souvenirs.

We walked around the grounds that were so beautiful and some the trees looked rather spooky.  We then had l303458_483106275037101_223529483_n.jpgunch at the cafe next to the house.
