Short trip to New Orleans
drinking bird
I was for a few days in New Orleans last week. We just stayed in the French Quarter, revisiting favorite spots, and of course eating oysters, crawfish étouffée and grilled red fish, not to speak of desserts and lots of pralines!

Here are a few glimpses of the French Quarter, which is virtually unchanged from before Katrina.

I know there is hardly any one in these pictures: everybody is inside still at breakfast or eating lunch! Believe me, the city was very animated, and, if anything, there were rather more tourists than I would have wanted.

Wow...looks really inviting, actually. lol ♥ I've always wanted to visit New Orleans, and I esp. love the foods, gumbo and Jambalaya...yuuum!

But, I'm so ashamed to say that about the only thing I'm familiar with the State of New Orleans (sry for being so naive about its history, etc. of the State; I know there's more to it than just ghosts alone =__=), is its ghosts or 'entities.' On the Discovery Channel, there was a TV series called, "Ghostlab", and my husb. & I would watch each episode every week. They've showed episodes in New Orleans several times for its ghosts, mostly in the old Plantation areas and underlying outskirts.

Nice pics btw! I esp. love the 1st one; very quaint and pretty w/the flowers or plants on the balcony like that. :)

Thanks so much for sharing! Will you have more or...?

I think ghosts are just for commercial purposes. We walked by our old guesthouse [where we stayed many times]. It has changed hands, and is now "the Haunted House Hotel".

New Orleans is very attractive, at least the French Quarter and the Garden District. For that matter, most of Louisiana is very pretty and interesting, especially all the bayou region. The old plantations are fun to visit. And the food is excellent.
