New Orleans

Posted on Wednesday, December 17th, 2003

Dave!One of my favorite cities on earth, New Orleans is one of those places that never leaves your blood once you've experienced it. The sights, the smells, the sounds, the atmosphere... it's all intoxicating. And if you want something really intoxicating, there's always Bourbon Street. Of course the first place I have to visit is Cafe Du Monde for some hot chocolate and beignets, but then it's off to the market to see all the clever crap that we tourists can't live without...

Colorful New Orleans dolls and puppets with mime faces and shiny fabric clothes.

A shelf filled with different hot sauces with clever names like SCORNED WOMAN.

Shelves filled with many, many different hot sauces.

Artificial skulls painted with flames on top.

Bins filled with small colorful toys, magnets, figurines, and such.

I rarely get the time to take a vacation, but you could do a lot worse than spending it in The Big Easy!

    I wish I had memories like this of NOLA.

    Maybe one day I’ll go back when its rebuilt… and get some.

    It’s been so long since I’ve been there. Not since the summer of ’98. I miss it terribly and still want to go back regardless of what has happened down there.
