New Orleans

New Orleans is a unique, vibrant city, famous for its music, Creole and Cajun cuisine, and its festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. In the heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its architecture and Bourbon Street nightlife.

A street flanked by pink and orange two-storey buildings with flowered balconies. In the road, people are walking, bicycles lean against an iron pillar and buskers are performing.


I love New Orleans because it offers the perfect combo of live music and food.
