Snaps From N'Awlins

In no particular order, here are a few French Quarter pics from the other day:A great building - one you've probably seen before in other New Orleans shots.

A fun and funky street band - literally. They were in the middle of the street. A little further down was another band, but this was our favorite. They were a mix of dixie and jazz, with a dash of bluegrass and rockabilly thrown in for good measure.
More architecture. This is a few blocks down from our hotel.

This is an interior shot of Pierre Maspero's where we had a fabulous breakfast. This building was originally used as a slave auction house. Kind of sobering in the light of all the New Orleans frivolity.

Today we're headed to the aquarium. It's chilly here, so an indoor activity seems like the right choice.


  1. I love your pics, Kristen. I've never been to New Orleans, but I'll have to put it on my "bucket" list.

  2. oh wow, it looks beautiful. the street band makes me swoony!!

  3. Very neat. Thanks for posting the pics.

  4. It's good to see posts that show the city alive.
