... cat. Both very famous in New Orleans musical history and have been the stomping grounds of some of the best blues and jazz bands to walk this earth.
Day 3 a tale of two cities (and a hurricane)
New Orleans is full of amazing history. This is clearly evident in its architecture. There are many street tours you can take to learn about the past. It's very fun, you can learn about the past, and importantly, New Orleans' musical history (birthplace ...
... of its original structure.
The original owner of the land (Duparc) had to petition the president of the time (Jefferson) for land which he was granted along the Mississippi where the plantation stands today. All the stories told on the tour are from the Memoirs of Laura which were found in France after her death. All plantations along the Mississippi had been painted white over the years but original Creole buildings were very colourful.
... sleep deprivation and abnormal alcohol intake but I don't think that was the sole reason for him nearly purchasing a $2000, 4 foot by 5 foot painting of Louis Armstrong. He did resist though he took the artists information and continues to debate going back for the portrait. honestly the painting is likely worth it, the skill was in evidence and was actually the same artist who designed the official French Quarter Poster for this year.
After lunch we drifted back ...
... flooding resulted from multiple breaks in the defences and went up the canals from Lake Pontchatrain twice in the space of 48 hours. The flooding was from 5 to 11 feet in many neighbourhoods and was catastrophic. 1600 people died, and the evacuation of people into the Superdome was a complete shambles. There were too many people there, with the sewage system backing up and no water or supplies. The National Guard and army did not communicate ...
I am feeling like a true blogger as Troy and I sit here smoking a Cuban cigar on a refreshing Cuban evening, life is good. I'm not here however to gloat about how we're loving life as I guess you all know this by now, I'm here to write about our time in New Orleans.
New Orleans would have to be one of my favourite places in the world, I don't think Troy understands what NOLA ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Maison Marigny B&B on Bourbon New Orleans
After trying nearly every hotel, motel and B&B in New Orleans, I now only stay at La Maison Marigny. This small B&B is luxurious, tastefully decorated, and scrupulously clean. My favorite room is the downstairs suite that has two fireplaces, gleaming wood floors, a four poster bed, chenille drapes, a Regency daybed in the sitting area, along with a stocked CD player, DVD player and Cable TV. Towels are fluffy, the bathroom is new and fully stocked -- there's even Tom's of Maine toothpaste! Breakfast is yummy with homemade muffins, scones, fruit and cereal. If you're lucky, mimosas are sometimes served! A lovely courtyard tops it all off. All this at a price that would get you windowless shoebox anywhere else. The location is quiet and safe, yet close to everything. I recommend this place wholeheartedly, especially if you want a truly New Orleans feel -- it just gets better every time I visit.
Best yet in New Orleans
My wife and I have visited New Orleans for the past eight years and have stayed in many places. We now have a new "home" at Le Maison Marigny. The Bed and Breakfast is delightful and luxurious and the physical location is a real plus. It was $100 a night cheaper than a room at the boxy Sheraton, too.
Clean and comfortable. Wonderful hosts who were very attentive yet "left us alone" to explore when needed. I loved the "our favorite places" map given to us when we checked in. I felt like a local!
Perfect accommodation - we loved it!
Perfect holiday - the apartment next door to the bed & breakfast was fantastic - scupulously clean, private, safe, quiet, close to all attractions and very good value for the money. Mike & Garland were very helpful and although the apartment/unit was self contained with no housekeeping, they provided tons of soap, towels, clean bedding, toilet & kitchen rolls, coffee, tea, sugar, beer etc etc. They also had a hairdryer, iron & ironing board in the apartment. I highly recommend this as an ideal place to stay!! Thanks for making our stay in New Orleans a memorable vacation. Also recommended for breakfast is Clover Grill and Port Of Call for great burgers, which are very close by.
Excellent place to stay--clean and beautiful. John gave us great recommendations for restaurants in the area and was a friendly and relaxed host. Fresh muffins at breakfast were a nice treat. Air conditioning works well for those not used to the heat and humidity.
Location very convenient--within walking distance of all the fun and shopping but far enough away from the noisier areas to have uninterrupted sleep. I would stay here again on my next trip.
Superior as usual!
Just returned from fifth visit in two years. The just-finished renovation is fantastic. You guys did a swell job. I think it looks nicer than rooms at many 4 star hotels. Only drawback is that you are FULL the next time I want to visit.
We stayed here in early June. Very nice rooms that are due to be remodeled this summer! They don't need remodeling though. Thoughtful guys running the place, from extra towels to irons and hair dryers in the room to lots of great tour and restaurant suggestions.
Very comfortable! Nice rooms and nice guys running the place but my favorite thing was just the LAID BACK, EASY GOING atmosphere. Grab a beer from the 'frig and chat with other guests in the courtyard--this is my kind of trip.
Gotta agree with the others
The B&B made our trip to New Orleans a special time indeed. Champagne in room, comfortable surroundings, very clean. All in all, top notch!
Loved it. Comfy room and super host (John) made it worthwhile. Even during Mardi Gras the 1400 block of Bourbon was peaceful.
