New Orleans a day at a time

New Orleans is a city brimming with so many different cultures and styles.  The joyful colors, wonderful sounds of jazz, blues, and rock and roll echoing throughout the day and night.  A musical mecca with many no cover charge clubs and of course the street performers were on every corner, tapping their feet, and playing the tunes.  This guy parked himself down and was oblivious to the crowd that was coming done the street.

  The mule drawn carriages lined the front of Jackson Square beckoning the foot weary tourist to jump on board.  At first I hum humed this.  After all what more could we see after walking the area for the last few days.  Wrong!  The guide, with his New Awleans drawl, added a different twist to the tales of the City. It was over too quick.  Definitely a must do.

 Of course what trip to New Orleans isn't complete without a tour a plantation!   Our lovely docent with her southern accent gave another lesson in history on our plantation tour.  Here she strikes a classic Scarlett O'Hara pose!
