Wordless Wednesday–New Orleans, 2007

A few of my favorite shots from our trip to New Orleans in 2007

Pelican (?) landing in the Mississippi River

Steamboat Natchez on the Mississippi River

Eve offers me a bite of the forbidden fruit at Mardi Gras World (where they build the floats for the Mardi Gras Parades)

The flambéing of our Bananas Foster at Brennan‘s, where it was invented.

We got to hold a baby alligator during our swamp tour (born/raised in captivity, not from the wild)

lamp post in Jackson Square

A garden district home decked out for the holidays (we were there over Xmas and New Years)

    Would love to see a pelican up close. Baby alligator is cute, but I would be worried about my fingers.

    Love the forbidden fruit shot too.

    It’s lovely to see the USA through your eyes. I’ve only been to Boston, NY and very little of Orlando…basically around Florida Mall.

    Which parts of the USA have you covered? Must be amazing to live in such a big country with so much to offer.

      -Maine (only the southern part, but extensively and have lived there on and off as a kid)
      -New Hampshire (mostly nashua for shopping and portsmouth)
      -Vermont (build a bear factor and the ben and jerry’s factory and that area)
      -Rhode Island (mostly providence, but I’ve driven though a lot of it)
      -Connecticut (Hartford, mystic, the casinos, driven though a lot of the highways there)
      -New York (by which I mean new york city)
      -New Jersey (mostly the parts near new york and I’ve been to edison a bunch for conferences)
      -Pennsylvania (Philly and Hershey)

      I’ve driven through a few other states (Delaware, Maryland, etc) but only ever stopped for food, so that doesn’t entirely count.

      Countries
      -USA (obviously)
      -Canada (Niagara Falls only, though)
      -England (only London)
      -Scotland (I feel like I’ve seen a lot of it during our almost 2 weeks there in 09)
      -France (paris, and lived in Aix-En-Provence, from which we saw parts of southern france near there)
      -Switzerland (zurich)
      -India (Bombay, Delhi, Agra)
      -Singapore (again, obviously)
      -Thailand (Phuket)
