I am from Hamilton, Canada (about an hour outside of Toronto) and I have been to New Orleans two times-once before Katrina and the second time after (Nov. 2006)and I love it more than ever. Before our recent trip to New Orleans, we had a lot of skeptic remarks from friends, family and acquiantances-everybody was wondering what we were gonna do there after the hurricane-but we were determined to see if our favourite vacation spot was still as great as we remembered it, and was it ever!! I have nothing but good things to say about our visit, and can't seem to stop thinking about it-we had a great time, the Quarter is just as beautiful as it ever was, and the locals are great! We talked to a few locals, who told us their sad stories from Katrina, and were in awe of them and their passion for their beautiful city-if they weren't already moved back, they were determined to get back on their feet in the city that they love. I really admired that, and it made me appreciate the beauty of New Orleans even more. For those skeptics, who are unsure about whether to visit or not, I say you are missing out on a beautiful, exciting, one of a kind experience that you can only get in New Orleans. Can't wait to visit again, I am in the process of planning my next visit for this year. Thanks for the great pics and memories!!
