new orleans souvenirs
New Orleans, Louisiana. Of all the places we visited in summer, this was the one that could not be summed up easily in a few words. A city that is full of life, music, colour, culture, history, cuisine and loyal lovers of their home. A place that leaves you feeling both despair and joy. Thank you to those who shared their stories with us as we sought some understanding of the harsh reality of Hurricane Katrina. Respect to those who have never given up hope on their cherished communities. It is inspirational to witness. May you conquer the oil spill and continue being strong, unique and proud. May your vibrant city never fade and your music always be heard.
Here are the first of my NOLA pictures – a souvenir shop on our first night walk.
