A little bit of wandering in New Orleans

I think I’ve just picked out the ultimate souvenir from my trip right here in New Orleans.
It wouldn’t be from Bourbon Street.
Maybe it was the drunken crowds over Memorial Day weekend but I think this party strip has to be one of the most disappointing tourist traps I’ve ever come across.

But New Orleans has so much more to offer.
I spent hours and hors wandering up Magazine Street and through the surrounding areas including the historic and very swanky Garden District.
If I had to take something home with me it would be one of these amazing houses, complete with patio or balcony, old fashioned lamp and splashes of color.
Not anything big or fancy, just one of the little guys at the end will do.
I promise I’d work extra hard on my mint julip recipe for those long, hot Louisiana evenings overlooking the tree lined streets from the patio. For guests, of course!
