Walking around and Crawfish in New Orleans...

Although I have already been in New Orleans 3 times, this one was my first time walking around the streets and doing some sightseeing. I'm used to go to the gym daily and was missing my working out. Heidi asked me if I would like to take a walk through St. Charles Ave. Of course I would! Our 45min walking turned to be an almost 2hr walking, hahaha. I was just taking pictures of the nice houses and asking about everything.
This time, we just walked through St. Charles. We started at the 40th Block and ended in front of the Loyola University and the park. Just at the end, I realized we have been walking quite a lot. I saw the Streetcar and really beautiful houses and buildings.
I had to say it was pretty cool. But I decided to take a walk daily, doesn't matter the weather, just because I wanted to do some exercise and explore the Garden District.
After works we went to a small nice bar, owned by friends. They were having a Crawfish Boil. What is that? Well, they throw into the pot not just Crawfish and Shrimp, but also potatoes, mushrooms, my favorite - the corn and cajun smoked sausage for eating, and lemon and onions for added seasoning. They cooked it in large pots and put everything in very large sor of tub. You just had to take your tray and take some.
Ok, next entrees will be about New Orleans, but the Mardi Gras' story has its own blog. It deserves it :)
