New Orleans is a place that can make the most jaded of people go wide-eyed. Throughout my introduction to the city yesterday, I found myself trying to look in eight directions at once to take it all in. My hostess, Dawn Carl, is an expert in the history, the architecture, and the cultural background of New Orleans. Walking around with her is like having my own personal historical walking tour. Yesterday we wandered the French Quarter, explored the riverfront, and enjoyed the action on Bourbon Street.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the first day here!
