One of the perks of living in Washington DC is that you meet people from all over over the world, and all the people you meet always seem to end up moving to fun and interesting places. While it’s hard to watch your friends move away, it’s always great to have a new place to visit, like New Orleans, Louisiana.
A friend of mine recently went off to grad school in NOLA and I jumped at the chance to pay her a visit!
New Orleans is such an interesting place—colorful, vibrant, lively—I just couldn’t get over how beautiful everything was. Between the architecture, music and food, this place is a must-see. While the nightlife didn’t suit me (the classic Bourbon St. scene doesn’t really do it for me), there were plenty of hidden gems that made this trip memorable. And did I mention the food?!
Here are some shots from my quick jaunt down south.
