    Taste of NOLA, the Creole City…

    I have fallen in love three times: Once with a boy, the other time with myself and the last time with a city. NOLA is such a beautiful place, its full of creative surprises and opportunities. It smells and feels like one is in the renaissance era. New Orleans birthed by Mother Africa is adequately mixed with the French and Spanish culture. (whats not to love!)
