We’ve been really excited about New Orleans- the food, music, drinking on the streets…etc. We got there a day before my sister was going to meet us so we spent some time in City Park. It’s a large park north of the city- it reminded me of Golden Gate Park in SF. We had cafe au laits and beignets and then walked around the sculpture garden. Even in this quiet park, there were musicians- that’s one of the best things here- there is good music everywhere. Then we headed to the French Quarter and had an oyster/shrimp po boy and more beignets. Oh yah- that’s one of the best things here- lots of 24 hour food places. Afterwards we walked to Frenchman Street where there are a few blocks of music venues and hung out until my sister’s flight that evening.
