    Default the thread to discuss New Orleans

    Have you been there? What is it like? Have you been there since Hurricane Katrina? Would you live there? Have you been to their many music festivals (Voodoo, Heritage,etc.)?

    Please discuss.....

    My NOLA Trip in 20 Photos or Less:

    1. Jazz.




    2. Street Musicians:



    3. Bourbon Street, No photos from the night time, I forget to take pics when I am drunk...



    3. Cops:




    Some dude had a shootout with the cops next to my hotel:



    Mind you, I was at the freeking Marriot, it was a nice hotel, and still, it aint Kansas:



    We painted houses, and did major cleaning and stuff, there were cops EVERYWHERE protecting us:



    here is me looking like a douche:



    so to finalize:




    and to answer your questions:

    Yes
    Rad, Humbling, Frustrating, Smelly.
    Yes
    Sure, I like Adventure, I have considered a Job in the Green Zone, NOLA would be cake compared to Baghdad...
    No real music festivals, but I saw a SHITLOAD of music when I was there...

    I have visited New Orleans three times: twice before Katrina and once after. Never for a music festival.

    My initial impression of the city was not favorable. I'm not a fan of the smelly, drunken, frat boy-style partying that Bourbon Street is famous for. But my most recent trip was significantly different from my earlier experiences. I planned my visit to coincide with Prospect.1 New Orleans, a new biennial of international contemporary art, held in 30-some venues throughout the city. I'm not sure if it's Katrina that cleaned out the city, or if it's that the biennial gave me a reason to leave the French Quarter and explore all the different neighborhoods around town, but I absolutely LOVED my visit. Spending time with locals -- locals who love the city enough to come back after Katrina and help rebuild it -- gave me a completely different impression of the place. It has always had the cajun/creole fusion that makes it so culturally interesting, but this most recent trip I was able to finally see it as a city to live in instead of just a big tourist attraction. I would move there in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.

    New Orleans has always been amazing once you got away from Bourbon Street. It's also always been plagued with murder and robbery.
