I am here in New Orleans and loving every minute of it just as I have every time I have been here! What an adventure! I came across this awesome quote:
There are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. – Bob Dylan
“Someone suggested that there’s an incomplete part of our chromosomes that gets repaired or found when we hit New Orleans. Some of us just belong here.” – John Goodman
No matter how many times I have been here, I learn multiple new things on every visit. This trip was in preparation for my next student tour. I toured many museums (NOMA, the Cabildo, the Presbytere, the 1850 House, the Jazz Museum), toured both buildings of the Historic New Orleans Collection, went to 5 plantations (officially toured 2), rode the St. Charles Streetcar, and ate at several awesome restaurants. I have been to the WWII Museum before, so I already know that is a must and they are building on to it, so even more things to see and learn when I come down the next time. I even took my grandma to all of these places with me, so here is a shout out to her for being such a trooper! The last time I was here, I brought my sister and her fiancée. Everyone needs to come here and experience the rich history and culture for themselves. I am so excited to bring students to a place I love so much and continue to discover more and more fantastic things with each trip! Well, that’s all for now!
Until next time NOLA!
