I am a native born Texan and until the end of June, I had never visited Louisiana. I went with my family to look at Louisiana Creole buildings because I would like to build this type of house on the Texas Gulf Coast. I loved Baton Rouge, but I especially loved New Orleans. I loved the Old World feel and walking all over the French Quarter. My family fell in love with the beignets from the Cafe du Monde and we ate them several times while we were there. We also went on the Natchez Paddle Wheeler tour and visited the Aquarium of the Americas. I did have an uneasy feeling when I visited the McDonalds on Canal Street in the early evening to get a coke. I had my kids with me and we got out of there as soon as possible. I think that kind of thing will be taken care of before long. All in all, the entire trip was wonderful and we hope to come back soon. I have a long list of places I want to see that I missed this time. There is no place as wonderful as New Orleans and I hope they are able to rebuild it back better than it was before without losing the integral feel.
