New Orleans

In Disney College Program, New Orleans, travel on July 15, 2011 at 7:21 pm
I have so much to say!!! I need to get all you lovely people caught up!! New Orleans, let’s start there! I LOVED New Orleans!!! It’s amazing. The whole city has so much character and heart!! It’s like you can see history unfold right before your eyes!! There’s still some places where you can see the leftover damage from Hurricane Katrina, and then there’s buildings that are brand new and massive. I spent most of our time there just wandering the streets and taking pictures. I love jazz so I also wandered into as many little jazz bars as I could find. Bourbon St is unreal! People everywhere, drinking on the streets, people I’m balconies flinging beads into the street, it’s like everyday is Mardi Gras! There’s a really cool walkway thing that’s along the Mississippi river with shops and restaurants. I also adore Cajun food!!! It’s so flavorful and delicious!! I am so happy that I had a chance to visit this amazing city before I leave the states!!!
Gorgeous buildings!!

Bourbon Street!!

The architecture is so fabulous!!

Exposed brick everywhere!!! This is in one of the hotels I stayed at

Crazy voodoo piano in a store in the french quarter

Crazy animal on the wall in a store in the french quarter

The ceiling in a fabulous cajun restaurant!

I adored this building. So much character

My favorite gate!

Quaint little shop’s in the french quarter

They get a little angry when you try on the masks and take pictures of yourself in the store!! Whoops!!
