Two years ago I went to New Orleans for a business conference. Although we were kept busy during the mornings and afternoons, I still saw and experienced enough of the city to realize that this is a wonderful, magical place. Last week I was fortunate enough to be able to return to that city strictly for a vacation. Friends and family had a hard time understanding that I wasn’t going there for Mardi Gras, I wouldn’t be drinking or partying in any way and I had no relatives to visit. They wondered what else there is to do in New Orleans. There is plenty to see and do.
There are the above-ground cemeteries.
Of course, there’s quite a bit more to see and do and hear and taste. The food in New Orleans is incredible. We didn’t have a bad meal. I think it’s kind of a big deal for someone who lives in Seattle to say that the seafood (and coffee) from another city is excellent. But that’s the truth.
The food, the coffee, the sights, the music and the people are what make New Orleans so special. You’ll be seeing a few more posts here about this most recent trip so stay tuned.
