New Orleans cannot be described. This city is out of place and time, it is unfathomable.

People go to New Orleans as if it was like any other city, reading tourist guides, imagining themselves drunk on Bourbon Street, crossing exotic-named places like Quartier Français and ticking out of the to-do-list that they saw a Gator in the Bayou. Once they deeply think they know the Big Easy, it grabs them and choosing what to do is difficult. Letting go and following the Crescent City means discovering unknown and dangerous streets, opening themselves to its mysteries and mostly forgetting whatever they learned about it…

” Laisser les bons temps rouler «  is the motto of New Orleans which means « Let the good times roll ».
