Another couple, my wife and I were vacationing in the Big Easy this week. Of course, I just had to stop into the Harley Shop pictured below. In New Orleans, approximately every five seconds you see or hear a Harley rumbling by. That means I get overwhelmed with extreme jealousy… every five seconds.
This was our first time in this wonderful city. By day three, we were completely settled in. It’s not the cleanest city in the world, but it’s charm is undeniable.
As most of you probably know, I’m a music lover. Yeah, I know, N’awlins is a pretty good spot to be, right? There is literally music everywhere. Street corners, bars, festivals, outdoor cafes, markets, balconies and everywhere you turn, you’re likely to hear talented musicians. To put it in perspective, I could easily see the street performers here in New Orleans playing on any stage, and at any venue in the nation.
