Late last year, Michael and I struck up a deal: since I had picked our last big vacation destination, he would be able to choose the next two so long as they were more local. (By local, I mean that they did not require crossing an ocean in order to visit.) New Orleans has been one of his favorite places since he went there ten years ago, and so we spent the better part of last week walking, eating, drinking, and photographing our way around the Crescent City.
In short: it was fantastic. I’ll be posting in more detail over the coming weeks, but in the meantime I wanted to provide a bit of a sneak peek of our few days in the Big Easy.
