New Orleans Bye for Now

Random photos walking around the French Quarter mostly. Drinking coffee, eating Cajun, listening to live music and drinking cocktails. Need to hit that Carnival one day.

  1. Great pictures of the crescent city! We got to stay in the corner apartment overlooking St. Louis Cathedral. It’s one of those with the iron railings. It was probably one of the coolest places we’ve ever stayed. We love N.O., but it’s been a while since we were there.

  3. Nice reminds of what Detroit is currently going through. A resurgence! Thereโ€™s actually a connection between Nโ€™awlins and Deโ€™toit; both were โ€œfoundedโ€ by the same person. Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac. Only difference they still speak French in New Orleans, but to find a French speaking person in the Detroit are is far and in between. Other than my trivia/rant, love the pictures! Makes me wanna visit, it is on my list of places to go, esp. on Bourbon St.

      1. There has been MANY attempts to get Detroiters-esp. those of the French diaspora, myself included-to learn of its French origins, if not the language altogether. I couldnโ€™t comprehend it at the time, but when I was in elementary/middle/high school, French was mostly implemented in schools mainly because of Detroitโ€™s French heritage (which I found out decades later). There have been boat tours offered points of origin in Michigan and itโ€™s connection to the French (they were cancelled due to COVID). I believe the auto industry and the 1967 race riot killed off what was once known as โ€œThe Paris of The Midwestโ€. Again, Iโ€™d love to visit New Orleans, and should I take up French again, Iโ€™ll be ready to speak with my fellow โ€œFrenchiesโ€ in their mother tongue.
