I didn’t just visit, I lived
If you visit New Orleans, you eat like they do, drink like they do and live like they do; and I did.
Mornings were oatmeal, eggs, bacon and a biscuit. Lunch was jambalaya and dinner was any seafood you could dream of; and dessert? Beignets and a café au lait.
If you visit New Orleans, you must wander through the French Quarter and walk down Bourbon Street. You must duck into a street restaurant and enjoy New Orleans food on a second floor patio while listening to street jazz bands play below. You must ride a mule-drawn carriage and visit Café du Monde. Eatred beans and rice, jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish fritters and beignets.
Wear color, go out at night; weave through the night markets, visit the WW2 museum, ride the tram.. the list goes on, but in short – be a tourist, but do as the locals do.
As soon as I landed 2 days ago, I was already plotting my next adventure. Where do you want me to explore to next? Leave me suggestions in the comments!
