New Orleans is a crazy place, filled with crazy people, great food and awesome music… we liked it a lot…. I especially like Beignets a lot, the french style fried donut thingy piled high in powered sugar and great with a cup of coffee.

The other must have is a Hurricane cocktail… this rum based drink is a bit on the crazy side, you only need a couple to get fully into the swing and party atmosphere.

In a nice change from motels and camp sites we book a hotel right in the heart of the city which made it easy to enjoy all the city has to offer.

We toured the french quarter, learned about voodoo, visited the hurricane Katrina museum and listened to some excellent jazz at Preservation hall.
