I was nervous about staying in New Orleans so booked into The Quality Inn on a special rate I found via the Internet.
I selected this Hotel its central location, and because the price was around $100.00 a night.
The Hotel was at the end of a street with little road frontage, and my
room was up some old fashioned stairs and overlooking the front street.
It was nothing spectacular and comfortable enough.
I found the front desk and concierge amazingly helpful when I asked
where to go. I wandered up the street and found the Casino. Behind the
Casino was the river and soon I was on a full day tour to see Historical
War grounds and an old famous southern Homestead...all very beautiful,
but the ferry boat cruise was the most wonderful...I took photo after
photo and got a total thrill from riding the Mississippi.
I mentioned to the desk that I was afraid to go out alone, and was told
the hotel had a limousine for use of guests with no extra charge. That
was to change my life as I got driven everywhere after that by one of
the most handsome and intelligent black guys I have ever seen...very
charming, who came back for me when I was ready to return.
I visted the Art Gallery where I got a tour of an Egyptian tomb...and
discovered the New Orleans Sculpture Garden, which I absolutely loved.
All the photos I took are on webshots...
Scroll down the albums to find New Orleans and you will see my photos.
I also went to the Music Warehouse, listened to jazz band, talked to
people on the street, went to the Haunted Cemetery which was spectacular and shopped and window shopped.
I enjoyed the delicate pastries in the famous street cafe where the
pigeons competed with the tourists for photo value. I walked the streets
to see the quaint buildings, was amazed at the carnival gear, rode a
carriage with a cute chipper horse, and delighted in the stunning shops
with their amazing goods.
New Orleans is absolutely full of life and vitality and
Quality Inn was a great location, with free all day brewed coffee and
fruit, and great breakfasts which was included in the price.I rode across
a lake on a bridge that is 25 kms long, and drove through the bayous
where they are growing huge rats for the table. I ate Gumbo and went to a JW Temple where I was welcomed and loved.
I stayed in Baton Rouge and went to the University and ate a favourite of mine, bought from a pretzel vendor on the banks of the Mississippi River who had the best smile ever.
The old houses, the homes of the wealthy, the winding roads, the horses
and carriages, and the food and music....New Orleans is amazing and I
will certainly go back there again...and stay at the Quality Inn again
too. I have only seen a tiny taste of what New Orleans has to offer...
