Rain in NOLA

Well I'm going to Mardi Gras in 12 days! Rob and I will be with my brother, his boyfriend and a big group of great people. New Orleans is such a cool city and I'm excited to bring Rob for his first time there. Pompob on Flickr has this great set of rainy days photos in the French Quarter.

While this looks beautiful, I'm hoping for sun and a mid 70's temperature.

A strip club and crawfish joint... welcome to New Orleans.

One of my favorite things is being able to walk the streets with alcohol, as long as it's not in a glass bottle. Pennsylvania would be quick to arrest a person for that.

There's a little sign under "Pat O'Brien's" advertising mint juleps. The perfect southern drink, along with an early morning bloody mary.

I can fondly remember getting 2 bottles of Jim Beam from Matassa's Market.

This isn't quite in the French Quarter, but the swamps are beautiful. Rob and I are excited to hang out in swamp country on our visit to the Big Easy!
