Fire & Water Fountain

This is a fountain at Pat O’Brien’s on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The more you drink the more appealing is the notion of having one in your back yard. This snapshot was taken with a hand held digital camera with no flash. It’s a wonder that it is as clear as it is.

Beignets and VooDoo

If you go to the French Quarter, you have to visit Cafe Du Mond for Beignets and Coffee. I’m sure they have banned trans fats …. \;-)

I have to say that despite the bawdy novelty of Bourbon Street, my main impression of the place is that it’s pretty unhealthy.  Not so much for the tourists, but for the folks who work there. It’s amusing to visit for a few days, but as a lifestyle it is quite corrosive.
