Today is Mardi Gras (“Fat Tuesday”) in New Orleans so I thought I’d share my thoughts on what living in this great city is really like.

If you want to learn more about New Orleans (or plan a trip here), I highly recommend Mark Bologna’s excellent podcast: Beyond Bourbon Street.

New Orleans is so much more than the superficial notions that many people have, mostly based on facile assumptions populated by the sensationalist-driven media reports.

If you come to visit shoot me an email and I’ll give you my best recommendations. And maybe we can meet up for coffee or a glass of wine.
