They have an amazing selection of the good stuff, so I decided to have some fun and try the Pernod. Here is a picture of an Absinthe Louche. Its a rough drink but for some reason I love the taste and history behind it. If you have never tried it, please do but be really careful! Overall, NOLA was fun, but totally different after Katrina - still lots of devastation which I was surprised about.
Since I had been gone most of the week, Carlo and I decided to go to the beach this weekend. It was beautiful in Orange County (as it usually is) and after a long week, what better way to spend the weekend. Laguna is nice this time of year with a perfect climate. The water is a bit too cold for swimming but it was nice to walk mile after mile feeling the cool breeze and ocean spray.
So here's to an amazing week! I still find it amazing I get so many readers - almost 200,000 since I have started writing - and although I do not publish many of the comments, thank you for all the kind words!
I wonder where our next adventure will take us? Costa Rica? Fiji? Tahiti?
