Sights in New Orleans





New Orleans
Can you imagine all this before Hurricane Katrina? Picture how beautiful it must be now!

The tours on boats to see the sights. There are even tours you can take in the swamps and get in touch with real nature ..maybe even an alligator or two . Or, you can sit by the water and watch them go by and enjoy the calm waters.

There is live entertainment all around. You can have your fortune told by numerous people sitting along the streets. You can watch the bands play on the street. I don't know what it is, but even if you do not like jazz, it seems very fitting with the entire atmosphere. Head on over to Cafe Du Monde for coffee. They even have those little French donuts to go wild for! But, watch out! That white powder will coat your clothing. :) Believe me-they're worth it.

The center of the French Quarter! There is much to see and many ways to relax. There is also shopping to satisfy any gift givers needs or memoirs of your trip.
Moving on into the evening. the energy picks up. There are tours into the mausoleums and cemeteries. After you have scared yourself silly, clean up at the hotel. Time for the experience you will love to forget on bourbon street! They have a huge I mean HUGE drink called the Hurricane! You can get it in Slushy form ;) hehe No foolin! Most people start off buying this drink. The night moves on, and you are enjoying the entertainment on the street as well as in the clubs. There is literally, something for everyone musically. You can dance on the street and catch some beads from someone above. You can be free and no one cares because they are doing the same thing you are! Take a walk by the river again before you head back to your hotel. It somehow sobers you a little. Then, try and find some breakfast as well. :) Sleep until noon or 3pm. It doesn't matter. The same thing awaits you the next day! And more...For families, there is usually a parade going on too! There are tours to accommodate any group.

2. Which country would you most like to visit?

3. What pick up line would work best on you?

4. If you could turn back time to any one point in your past, would you?

5. Where are you most ticklish?

Interview rules: Leave me a comment saying “Interview me next" or "Hit me with your best shot" or something along those lines letting me know you're down to be questioned. :D
I’ll respond by commenting back on your blog with your five questions. I get to pick the questions.You will then update your blog with a post containing your the answers to the questions.You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
So, who wants to give it a go? Leave a comment and let me know if you're down to let me do you next. At least one of you has to let me do an interview with ya. It'll be easy, fun, virtually painless and you'll enjoy it. :D
Anyone else up for an interview? See my blog and leave a comment!
