There was music every corner. We went to a couple restaurants with live jazz music, where people danced freely as if everyday is a Friday.

I kept imaging what it would be like living in one of these apartments in the French Quarter. I could listen to live music, chow down on good food, and shop at cute boutiques. What a life.

This is the magical beignet with sugary wonder dust. I had beignets at Cafe Du Monde four times of the five days we were there. Yes, it was that good.

Did you know there are about 2 million alligators living in the swamps of southern Louisiana? And they love marshmallows?
I went on a swamp tour (it was nothing like Swamp People) outside New Orleans. There was alligators everywhere, which to my surprise, are very gentle and calm creatures. I even held a baby one.The tour guide fed alligators marshmallows and raw chicken. Sounds like a well-balanced meal.

I love every part of New Orleans, minus the heat and humidity. I have grown to love Creole cuisine and its culture. I took pictures of all the good foods I had, which I will write about later. I miss the beautiful city already. It's magical.
