Café Du Monde & Walking around New Orleans

Scroll down to content

We are in New Orleans, LA for Mardi Gras. We always have wanted to travel to the worlds greatest festivals and celebrate life. So, last night they closed up the Endymion parade, because for the second time this week a person somehow was crushed by a float and died. Prayers and Love to these families for their great losses. So we will post the few pictures of just the beginning of the parade after we have a few more parade pictures to share.

We did have some incredible beignets at the historic Café Du Monde. A tasty treat after a night of drinking. Coffee and super powder sugar beignets. The Coffee here is a mix of coffee and chickory, dark and woodsie tasting to me. I took a couple of spoonfuls of the powdered sugar to mix with my coffee and it was sweet and like a dessert drink.

At Jackson Square, across from cafe du monde. It is filled with artists, music, tourists and fun.

    1. It is and so far safe, but were being smart about it. Never saw so many empty phone cases from stolen phones, as we saw on bourbon street, they were everywhere dozens of them. We keep our stuff on our inside pockets of our zipped up coats, but saw so many ladies super drunk with there purses wide open.

  1. Sugar beignets reminds me of my youthful days. I often went to the cafe famous for sugar beignets with my girl friend. That cafe closed many years ago and I have forgotten sugar beignets which are rarely served in Tokyo.
    Thank you for recalling my sweet memory.

    1. It was. There were clear and solid barriers keeping us from walking in the street, but people jumped over them and wanted the goodies that they could not reach from behind the barriers. So I guess our advice is stay behind the barrier a light up necklace or purse or shoe or frisbee is not worth it really.
