As I boarded my flight back to New York, I was struck by how much I had done in 48 hours. In New Orleans, it’s easy to stumble upon a great bar, café, or jazz club, or a delicious hole-in-the-wall restaurant. In fact, it’s almost impossible not to. Learning about the city’s history and culture on my walking tour, talking to locals at the Spotted Cat and other friendly venues, and just plain slowing down, allowed me to peel back the layers of the onion just a little bit more.
The mystery of New Orleans got solved the best way it could: over food, drinks, and great music. This trip I went beyond the ordinary and scratched below the surface. Sure, it was only 48 hours, but this was exactly what I needed for the city to finally click with me.
Laisser les bons temps rouler indeed.
