Finally, after six long weeks of prepping I have finally arrived in the Crescent City. The atmosphere of this place is unlike any other. Everyone in this city seems to know every Louisiana story no matter the age or generation, and the city is absolutely full of history. The buildings look like they were grabbed from a scene in a movie set in 1800’s France, but with a modern twist. The colors of New Orleans is incredible! I have never seen such vibrant colors painted on a house such as: lime green, hot pink, bright purple, and so many more. There is however, a sense of grittiness to the city, but it seems to add to the charm. The grittiness of the city seems to represent its history and strength in staying together no matter what is thrown at it. The people of New Orleans are kind and giving, and I can’t wait to see and learn more.
