OUR VIEW: A VISIT TO NEW ORLEANS AKA “THE BIG EASY”
New Orleans – aka “NOLA”, aka “The Big Easy” – seems different to the rest of America. You could almost not be in the USA. There’s a languid, tropical feeling in the air as soon as you land – on my visit the effect being enhanced by touching down in the middle of a monsoon.
Trace the roots of American music in the Deep South and experience the unique cultural landscape and fascinating history that gave birth to the blues, jazz, country and rock ‘n’ roll. Days move a little slower in the South, as you pass the time with a sweet tea or a mint julep, taking in the sights and sounds of Music Row in Nashville, Beale Street in Memphis and Bourbon Street in New Orleans.
