    New Orleans

    April 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Irrtum: Ich hatte mir eingebildet, hier sei es immer warm. An einem Tag brauchte man die warme Jacke. 11 Grad C + Regen.
    Aber allein das Essen ist eine Reise wert. Ich habe eine Kochdemonstration besucht; meine ersten Gäste weden dann auf kreolisch bekocht😋.
    Besuch auch auf ehemaligen Plantagen. Und einiges über die Sklaven und Zuckerrohr erfahren.
    Mein nächstes Ziel ist Fort Lauderdale. Mit dem Flieger.

    The big easy [New Orleans]

    January 31, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We could almost say, another ferry, another fort. We visited the swamp hangout of the "entrepreneur" (pirate) Jean Lafitte and the 1815 battlefield of his earstwhile buddy, Andrew Jackson.

    Lafitte is quite the mythical figure. We don't quite know when or where he was born. Or when or where he died. But in between he was larger than life.

    New Orleans truly is one if a kind. A cultural melting pot like no other in America. Strolled around the French quarter with a ferry ride over the mighty Mississippi. Lots of exotic meats here to our vegetarian horror: gater turtle soup, and other helpless seafood. Passed on ding here.

    Mr B's Bistro

    October 24, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    At the recommendation of our friend, Donna, in Atlanta we headed for Mr. B's Bistro for a seafood lunch. Gordon enjoyed his tomato goat cheese bisque followed by prawns in cajun red sauce with cheese grits. Heather started with a traditional gumbo and swooned over her soft shell crab with beans almondine and grilled lemon.

    We LOOKED at the dessert menu, but then waddled out without indulging further. We had been blessed so far with increasing clouds, mild temperatures, and gusty breezes ... very comfortable to our Northwestern sensibilities. But the wind was picking up so we decided to head back to camp.

    It was a wonderful end to a terrific day in New Orleans.
