Visiting New Orleans

(New Orleans, Louisiana - LA, USA)

New Orleans is perhaps most famous for its southern charm and cuisine, although recently this has been somewhat overshadowed by the city's recent devastation and flooding following Hurricane Katrina at the end of August 2005.

Much of New Orleans has since been rebuilt and the city's in once more regaining its tourist appeal.
