Dagens turistattraksjon: The French market.
Internett informerar: In 1791, the French Market originated as a Native American trading post along the Mississippi River. From there it continued to evolve into a cultural and commercial hub for New Orleans, as French and Spanish colonists opened the market up to ships and traders from all over the world. Over the next three centuries, immigrants from Europe, Africa and the Caribbean began to open their own venues at this French Quarter market, offering everything from Italian butcheries to African coffee and Choctaw spices.
In the late 19th century, the Market was given its modern day, bizarre-like structure, designed by Joseph Abeilard, one of America’s first African American Architects. With its new permanent home, the French Market continued to grow and add more commercial products, fresh produce and unique commodities that cannot be found anywhere else.
Eigentleg leita vi etter Boards & Bricks, ein butikk som sel brettspel og Lego, men plutseleg var vi her. Tenkte at eg skulle sjå om dei hadde postkort. Det hadde dei ikkje.
Det dei derimot hadde ganske mykje av var alligatorhovud, voodoo-dukker og kafé-musikantar som spelte songar vi kan.
Her har du eit typisk hus som vi kom på at vi burde ta bilete av på veg ut av byen.
