Going Down to New Orleans

One of my favorite places to visit is New Orleans. It's a city full of life, fun, good people, good food, and of course MUSIC!

It's been over a year, since I last visited the Big Easy, and it's been way too long! Who's ready for a Road Trip?!

  2. Great pictures! Brings back memories of my trip there 5 years ago!

  3. THank you for stopping by my blog. it's nice to meet you! can't wait to check your blog out. ♥

  4. Ah, New Orlens! How I adore thee. It really is a fantastic city, isn't it? I have only been there once, but the experience is one that I will never forget.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday! Beautiful pictures of New Orleans! It's such an amazing city - love the distinct architecture and historical parts of the city! (And love that you've paired all your posts with music, even if I will have some of these songs stuck in my head for the rest of the evening!)

  9. I've never been to New Orleans but I would love to go!

  10. Amethyst:

    Great to see your post that invokes Arlo Guthrie's version of Steve Goodman's "City of New Orleans." Goodman often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in my 800-page biography, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the genesis and effects of "City of New Orleans," and Arlo Guthrie is a key source among my 1,050 interviewees and even contributed the foreword.

    You can find out more at my Internet site (below). Amazingly, the book's first printing sold out in just eight months, all 5,000 copies, and a second printing of 5,000 is available now. The second printing includes hundreds of little updates and additions, including 30 more photos for a total of 575. It won a 2008 IPPY (Independent Publishers Association) silver medal for biography.

    'Nuff said. Thanks again.

  12. Love the pics! Never been to N.O. but would love to visit some day. =)

  13. Ahhhh, I miss N'awlins so much [moved to Houston after Katrina]. But, to be honest, I love it more now that I get to miss it. Thanks for the flashback.

  14. I definitely want to go to New Orleans now!
