New Orleans

French Quarter garden

A coffee shop that made a half decent espresso, sorry but American coffee is not good

French quarter balcony


Nearest thing to an edible plant I could find !

Alligator on a stick ... it was OK

French market, a few ok food stalls but mostly tacky souvenirs

Beignets at Cafe du Monde ... yum !

Wayne was very cool, met him by sticking my head in the back of a restaurant, we talked food for a while.


  1. Ahhh, that brings back memories.

  2. Great pictures, Mat - particularly love the monochrome Jack Daniels and the piano bunting (?)

    What's the thing on a stick you're chowing down on? Things on sticks rule ;)

  3. Is everyone recovering from the floods ok? It *LOOKS* Ok, but looks can be deceiving...

  4. Lovely set of images, looking like a great trip so far! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Looks great. My friend moved here recently and I am planning a holiday there soon. Your photos are persuading me to go sooner rather than later.
