Back to New Orleans Part 2


Across the street from our hotel is the Musical Legends Park where we stayed after we got dropped off by our friends. We lingered there for the music. There was a band playing wonderful music. We sipped more chicory coffee while listening to music.

More coffee.

We went walking around the French Quarter, making the most of our limited time in the city.

Music is everywhere. The ones performing in the streets like this group are really good.

We also visited the St. Louis Cathedral, which will be featured on the next post.

After visiting the cathedral, we continued to explore the area by foot.

The original location of the Cafe du Monde. It was jampacked with tourists.

We went browsing at stores, one of them is this place that sells all kinds of hot sauce.

The waterfront.

Was getting late and for dinner we were contemplating about eating out, but by this time we were simply tired. So we we decided to take something to go and just have it at the comforts of our hotel room.
