Virtual New Orleans

Photographer Ray Broussard has some Quicktime VR shots of New Orleans at his site. I really like how the icon on the map shows which way you are facing. These are really cool, I can almost smell the muffaletta and crawfish and sewer gas and piss and puke smells that I associate with the city. One thing I’ve always loved is being in the French Quarter during the day on weekdays. It’s much calmer and really, more fun than Tourist Times, if your agenda is anything more than macking on chicks and trying to see their boobies. Breakfast at Cafe du Monde, walk around by the river, have lunch at that muffaletta joint on Decatur Street whose name I can’t remember, have a drink at one of the zillion bars. That’s a pretty good day in my book.
