#A to Z Challenge Letter N is for New Orleans or NOLA
I first visited New Orleans when I was 17 with my high school classmates for our senior trip. We saw Brenda Lee perform at the Hotel Roosevelt. It is an endearing city with southern charm. I return when I get an opportunity. I went when the World's Fair was exhibiting there. We ate at the restaurant of the famous chef K Paul. I've gone to celebrate my birthday, which is on New Year's Day. We celebrated at one of Emeril's restaurants. I've taken family members to show them what I fell in love with: the plantations, the Beignets at Cafe Du Monde, the artists at Jackson Square, the architecture all over the city, the history, the cemeteries, the seafood . . . You get the idea, I love NOLA.
