The Mississippi… only a few steps ahead.
The city with the most haunted houses, ghost stories, legendary rivers, hop on & off cars, mysterious world of the undead, and also the cities of the dead, vampires’ cradle, Anne Rice‘s home, Jazz, music, bands, antiques, movie-making, NOLA ranks 3rd city in the US -after Los Angeles and New York City, also the birthplace of Cuffs and Buttons, also known as Southern Comfort… a place where the tragedy ran deep, the city burned twice, and suffered much damage after Hurricane Katerina, but can still sweep you off your feet. I want to stay there forever. New Orleans, a place where mostly the magic runs deep. I want to stay there forever 🙂
Those timeless buildings, built, burned, built again, destroyed by the storm, rising from their own ashes, yet another time.
The rumour is true; Café du Monde makes the best Baignets!

“Don’t you just love those long rainy afternoons in New Orleans when an hour isn’t just an hour – but a little piece of eternity dropped into your hands – and who knows what to do with it?” Tennessee Williams, a streetcar named Desire.
Certainly some wine and some ink too.
Directions: There is no West, East, North, or South in New Orleans. We head uptown, downtown, lakeside and riverside. And anywhere the music is.
And also got bourbon faced on shit street.. 🙂

Mixed with the true spirit of Mardi Gras!
Bacchanal, New Orleans
I have a thing for steampunk 🙂
