I Now Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans

Don't have time to post some of the pics, but we did a whirlwind of New Orleans. Stayed just around the corner from Bourbon Street. Pricelined a great hotel room for only $44.00. 30 feet and we were on the street of night life in NO.

My first thought was New Orleans reminded me of the photos of Havana, Cuba I've seen over the years in their entertainment district, only the 1950's vintage autos are year 2000+ in New Orleans.

Only found one club playing Dixieland Jazz, but it was great to hear the music of the Big Easy in a small intimate club. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed til closing, which is unusual for us.

Had some great food. Rode the streetcar. Heard some great rock and roll music by cover bands that sounded like the real groups they were playing the songbooks of.

Diana was shocked at some of the clubs in the French Quarter. Adult themed. I saw a Hustler Club that had as its motto, "Relax. It's only sex." While we got no further than the sidewalk, maybe they do have a point.

Walked over the Mississippi River this morning and watched some of the boat traffic.
