A Weekend In NOLA [On The Road: New Orleans]

During my last visit to the US I had the unique chance to visit New Orleans, the city was on the top of my must visit, the reasons quite a few but I summarise them in food and jazz. One of the most unique city in the US, French influence, great cuisine, birthplace of Jazz, running across the Mississippi river, kept the spirit high after the devastating events of Katrina, great hospitality, and don’t forget the party atmosphere in the French Quarter with one of the most famous events in the world the NOLA Carnival or Mardi Gras.

Things to do includes going party till late in the French Quarter and Bourbon Street and don’t forget your beads, enjoy any of the celebrity chef restaurants around town, ride in any of the 19th Century Streetcars, have a beignet in Café du Monde, submerge in a night of jazz in one of fantastic clubs, eat at least one amazing Po Boy sandwich, or get a bag of the local Zapp’s the Voodo Chips what in this side of the world we call crisps.

Great city, mental party, awesome music, and delicious food, do you need more reasons to go?

More jazz
Jazz reminds me when Elaine went out with a Sax player in the Seinfeld episode “The Rye” 

Jerry: So I take it he's spongeworthy? 
Elaine: Oh, yeah 
Jerry: Well, he's a musician. I guess they're supposed to be very, you know, uninhibited and free 
Elaine: Well, actually, he's, he's not that way at all 
Jerry: Oh, no? 
Elaine: Yeah. In fact, he... 
Jerry: Come on, come on 
Elaine: I don't want to! 
Jerry: Elaine, you're among friends 
Elaine: Well, actually, he, um, doesn't really like to do... everything 
Jerry: Oh 
Elaine: Yeah. It's surprising 
Jerry: Yes, it is. It is surprising. Does that bother you? 
Elaine: No. No, it doesn't bother me. I mean, it would be nice. I'm not going to lie to you and say it wouldn't be nice 
Jerry: Sure. Why not? You're there
Elaine: Exactly
