Although I was born in Louisiana and went to Shreveport and Monroe several times, where my mother’s side of the family all live, I only made it to New Orleans once. I was maybe 12 years old, and it is still one of my favorite cities. The music and the food are everything they’re rumored to be. I remembered the beignets, street artists, street theater with puppets (I’ve always liked puppets), catfish, an awesome bookstore… definitely a wonderful city. My heart is with them now, as it was three years ago.
