THINKING OF THE BIG EASY
I watch the weather and I think of the times I have visited New Orleans.I find myself thinking fondly of the city. Their is no where in the world quite like it. I remember the first time I saw Canal St. I thought how wide it was. I also remember my mouth dropping wide open when I saw a person of little attire swinging through a window in the Bourbon St.area. I think of the Candy factory and the singing . The River Boat rides,Sugar Plantations, and of course Ponchartrain. When I was told you could not see land from the middle of the bridge I thought they were kidding ,but it was true because I tried my best ,and the water is the same color as the Carribean. I would also go to New Orleans to eat. Not being a great cook ,I looked forward to the culinary creativity of New Orleans.I have also found myself going to New Orleans to just do nothing,perhaps due to the mood of THE BIG EASY.
Traveling has always been a part of learning. Men have traveled to find a better way of life to find food and to visit friends. In doing so the world has become a smaller place. We travel and we learn with hands on experience, and in the process we grow.
