I totally agree, and to add some more, New Orleans has its local cuisine like jambalaya, gumbo, crocodile poboys, muffaletta (sandwich) and beignets.

New Orleans looks good in colours, in b/w and at dusk.
Great pics, capricorn!

The iron balconies are something special and beautiful.
Did you like the local cuisine, capricorn?

I did try jambalaya but I think I would like it after some more try that I have to get my tongue used to it. Beignets which I really like as a light breakfast or snacks. Beignets were declared the official state doughnut of Louisiana in 1986. And muffuletta which is an Italian sandwich (created in 1906 at Central Grocery) consists of a muffuletta loaf split horizontally and covered with layers of marinated olive salad, mortadella, salami, mozzarella, ham, and provolone. I tried this at Central Grocery and I like it.


jambalaya (small bowl) which cost USD 6.00


Beignets - a pastry with powder sugar on top (which look like a flour)

Love your pics of Canal Street at dusk, and the black and white. Some gorgeous building and statue in New-Orlean

I'm not sure but I have the feeling that I tended to produce some misunderstandings
over the last while, not sure...

I loved your pics of jambalaya and beignets, capricorn, and would have eaten that
all up, if I was there!
Seeing that tasty looking food makes me feel hungry now in the early morning.

Hi GE, that statue is Andrew Jackson's, an American soldier and statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837.He won a decisive victory in the War of 1812 over the British at the Battle of New Orleans, making him a national hero.

I don't think so. sometimes we made a wrong impression and somebody corrected it, I mean making a mistake happens to everyone.
I remembered one time, somebody commented that my pics are "wicked" and I took it negatively. it's a good thing that one of the moderators
told me that that's a positive thing. then I realized maybe it's a new term used to express a positive description.
no worries and have a good day Silvia.

Thank you, capricorn, I'm relieved now!
Sometimes it's really a question of using the right term in another language,
and I'm not very good in English. If you all could see how often I have to
use the quick translation in internet while I write my comments here...

I also wish you a good day, capricorn!
