If you could sense the breathy wave of lavender lamps lining up the street
or smell the remnants of crawfish and oysters running down the sewage
It had probably rained way too much in New Orleans
I’d wish you a merry Christmas anyways
and a cute monkey to hold your umbrella when it rains?
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Just got back from New Orleans Xmas trip with roomie and now prepping for snowboarding in NM.
Wandering around taking random photos and 7-meals a day is quite an unexpected way to spend my first Xmas break in the states -_-.
Free upgrade to first class thanks to Continental, surprise last-minute encounter with old friend Jasmine , talking in wenzhounese with random local chef, some random late night gallery hop, hugging alligators and taking swamp tour, and endless restaurant crawl. Yo good time!
