NEW ORLEANS

NEW ORLEANS
THERE IS SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL ABOUT THE PEOPLE OF NEW ORLEANS. I’M SURE IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE HOSPITALITY AND HOW THEY EXTEND THEMSELVES IN MAKING SURE YOU’RE OK AND YOUR VISIT IS PLEASURABLE. OR IT COULD BE THEIR SKIN TONES THAT RANGE FROM BUTTER PECAN TO RICH DEEP CHOCOLATE…OR COULD IT BE THOSE HIGH AFRICAN/INDIAN CHEEK BONES OR THAT SOUTHERN DRAWL DIPPED IN A FRENCH CAFE AU LAIT. WHATEVER IT IS KEEPS ME FASCINATED ABOUT NEW ORLEAN FOLK.

AFTER SEEING A BASKETBALL GAME AT THE ARENA AND WITNESSING CHRIS PAUL AND HIS CREW WHOOP THE OPPOSING TEAM I CELEBRATED THE NEW BRAND JORDAN SHOE AT A DOWNTOWN HOT SPOT.

LOVE THE ENERGY

LOVE THE ENERGY


THE FOLLOWING DAY I HAD OFF AND DECIDED TO TAKE A WALK THRU THE HARRAH’S CASINO, TRAVELED UNDERGROUND, DOWN A TUNNEL, UP AN ESCALATOR AND FOUND MYSELF IN FRONT OF AN OUTSIDE RESTAURANT THAT I REFUSED TO PASS BY. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS GREAT AND WHILE THE MUSIC PLAYED I CHOMPED DOWN ON SOME GOOD BBQ SALMON. AS I SAT SOAKING UP THE HEAT AND SUN I SPOKE WITH A YOUNG GIRL WHO WAS A HOSTESS AT THE ESTABLISHMENT. SHE WAS EXTREMELY PROUD OF HAVING BEEN BORN IN NEW ORLEANS AND ALTHOUGH SHE HAD LIVED IN MANY PLACES NOTHING WAS LIKE COMING HOME, ONCE AGAIN TO, LIVE IN HER NATIVE HOMETOWN.

SHE BOASTED THERE WAS NO OTHER CITY ON EARTH WITH THE HERITAGE AND CULTURE AS DEEP AS WHERE SHE NOW RESIDED AND EVEN THOUGH I COULD HAVE FOUGHT IN THAT INSTANCE TO UPHOLD THAT NY HELD THE WIDEST VARIETY OF FOREIGNERS THAT CAME FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE TO BE IN THE MIDST OF THE 5 INFAMOUS BOROUGHS THAT MAKE UP NYC. YES I COULD HAVE TOTALLY GONE INTO ALL OF THAT BUT THIS YOUNG LADY WAS SO PROUD OF A CITY THAT STILL REMAINS TO BE UNDER SERVED THAT I FELT AN OVERWHELMING NEED TO JUST LISTEN AND LEARN.
I WILL RETURN TO NEW ORLEANS BECAUSE I INTEND TO HELP IN ANYWAY POSSIBLE. ANYWAY THAT MY SERVICES ARE NEEDED AND IN ANYWAY THAT I CAN SHOW THE LOVE FOR THEM THAT THEY HAVE CONTINUOUSLY SHOWED TO ME.

    I was first introduced to New Orleans during undergrad. We went to the very first Essence Festival and we have been going every since except for two years. I love the city it has so much history and before Katrina the older people were so helpful and nice made you feel at home. It made us listen to the old stories and history. They told stories that made you feel like you were there during a certain part of history. Outside of the partying and French Quarters there is so much more to the city. I get excited as I get closer to returning to the city. I usually stay in the Jazz District. I can’t wait until July….
