If you’re visiting New Orleans and have access to a car, don’t miss the Whitney Plantation on River Road. It’s a powerful, beautiful place – the only plantation museum in the U.S. that focuses on slavery.

Before we get to my weekend in New Orleans, some more good news: I just won a New York Institute of Photography travel photography course! Woohoo! Which is exactly what I shouted when I saw my name on the website. I didn’t at all expect to win since there were so many entries, but there you are. The unexpected certainly does happen.
Mom and I spent a long weekend in New Orleans for her birthday, and now that I’ve been there three times I had a realization. Aside from live music everywhere, fun, friendly people, and the ability to legally drink technicolored cocktails in the street, one other thing never gets old.
I’ll write a longer post about my trip to New Orleans, with lots of photos, but not today. I’ve got to handle some much needed post-vacation desk excavation. But I wanted to give you a taste of my weekend:
