February Fandom - I love New Orleans

I love traveling, period. New Orleans is one of those places that I would return to in a heartbeat. Just give me a ticket and at least twenty minutes to pack and I'm there. I went looking for my collection of pictures from my visit to the city and can't find them but the shots I found online are very similiar to ones I have from Jackson Square and the riverboats on the muddy Mississippi to Bourbon Street at night to abandoned strings of Mardi Gras beads hanging from the trees (in my case it was electric or telephone lines like abandoned tennis shoes). I totally adored the city and the music. The first night we were there we ate on Bourbon Street and afterwards the group I was with started wandering back to the hotel and I yelled out. "Where are you going?" I couldn't believe it. They were going back to the hotel. I shook my head, throw up my hands and then grabbed my hubbie and headed back into the gathering crowd. I did that almost every free night we had getting my fill of the music and energy of the people and atmosphere. I loved it. We even let some guy claiming to be the happiness police (or something like that) talk us into buying a hat because we weren't smiling at the time. What a city! My favorite club was a little place on the corner of Bourbon and Toulouse called the Funky 544. It has a bit of everything music-wise. Check it out if you are there. I've even used the place in a fic I was writing. It made such an impression on me. The VooDoo Marts just made my laugh. It's perfect for New Orleans.

It's worth the effort. Hopefully you get to go some day.

I'd love to visit New Orleans, but it will probably never happen, which is all right really. I travel through pictures! :)

I'll have to remember to put the next set of pictures in a safer place. I do plan to go back.
