I'm currently at Lollapalooza with my friends, spending way too much money on beer and getting way too much mud on my shoes (and not carrying even the slightest about either points). And while I'm busy dancing and elbowing my way up to the front stage, here are some adventure pictures to tide you over. This is when we took a friend vacation to New Orleans earlier this summer, and, I'm not even kidding you, I'm still dreaming about pralines and Pimms Cups, crawfish and benyays. I'm already itching to go back. I loved getting all dreamy over the french balconies, and hearing jazz music sing its brassy, simmering song on every street corner. It was a constant parade of candy colored houses, pretty cocktails, rooftop restaurants, and thick, wonderful, southern heat. I'm already saving my dimes to move there. French Quarter, here I come!
