Back in one of my favorite cities. New Orleans, Carnival 2015. Of course we came back another year, this time, with friends. Last year was too much fun.

French Quarter Fest in New Orleans. There are so many people – happy people. Beautiful art and delicious food. The air is warm. Music rings through the air.

IMG_2144Carnival 2014 in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Rue de Bourbon itself. Such charm, such character, such an event. We wandered the streets in purple & gold, dined atop a balcony, pleaded for beads, danced at the bar.

I loved New Orleans. There was history. There was art. There was the Gulf. I plan to be back for calmer days.
