NOLA! Cafe Beignet! Crawfish! errr... uhh... On second thought, let's skip the crawfish. Maybe some shrimp gumbo instead?
The rrrraa-ca-ca-coon is cute! I hope that it knows about the alligators. That draw bridge is pretty cool too. That's a photo that if it were in black and white, it could easily pass as being from the mid 1900s. I like the twisted tree, and the musicians as well. And I really like the photo of you and your wife!
I've only been to New Orleans twice: Summer of 1984 for the World's Fair, and 2000 for Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras was just too insane for me, but I have some cousins that insist on attending every year. I preferred the slower pace of the Summer season. It allowed for the enjoyment of the subtle nuansces of the city, and the fun of the street musicians that you captured in your photos.
Thanks for the memories, Sury!
