New Orleans - USA
(July 2014) The Place: There is a house in New Orleans... and there are some funky streets, restaurants and jazz clubs too! We had a brief but awesome visit of the city's colourful, festive and crazy French Quarter which sits right on the Mississippi in Louisiana.
Highlights: The food was delicious, mainly Bayou style consisting of Gumbo, Jumbalaya, Shrimp, and Crawfish (yes, with a 'w'), and Chilli Sauces of all descriptions! Just off famous Bourbon Street, which following hurricane Katrina is slightly on the dodge side, is Frenchmen St. where we were lucky enough to watch some authentic jazz, including Washboard Chaz at The Spotted Cat. Also soaked in the art and colour and stories of the french quarter which included the haunted 'La Maison LaLaurie'.
