City Of New Orleans

The City of New Orleans is a place like no other. If you have a chance to go, it will be an experience you'll never forget. It's almost like being in another country; especially on Bourbon Street. The shops, sights and sounds will tempt, tease and delight. Live music rolls out of open bars with each step you take. Rock, blues, funk, soul, zydeco and more-it's all there!

Culinary delights abound as well. Crayfish, gumbo, red beans and rice, oysters, shrimp, po-boys, mufelatta sandwiches, etoufee, jambalaya, not to mention cafe au laite with beignets at the world famous Cafe Du Monde.

A stroll down the French Quarter and French market-a living breathing work of art, the Warehouse district, Uptown and the Riverwalk. Walking about and looking down side streets-each one unique with it's vines and ironwork, colors, decorative plants and flowers. It's like walking through many paintings at one time.

Hurricane Gustav cut our trip short, but we had 3 good days in NOLA filled with sights, sounds, food, drink and fun!

Sistren Leslie,

Giving thanks to Jah for your safe return from Naw'lenz. My last visit was in 2001 before Katrina did her damage there.

RAS-pect to Jackie.
