A Week in New Orleans

French Quarter Facades
French Quarter Facades

Wow, I have learned so much on this visit.  First, New Orleans can teach what we need to know about the history of race relations in the United States.  The path from French colony to American city is a case study in the development of race separations and the assertion of a superior class.  Second, as many know, it must be one of the richest of cities for its character and diverse architecture. The confining water on all of its sides has made a concentration of urbanity and desperation which is hard to find anywhere else.  But, it is not a museum city like Venice.  It just reminds you of such places. I have had a great time here and will look forward to learning more and returning for another visit.
