New Orleans, Louisiana

Had a great time walking around the French Quarter this afternoon. Had an amazing lunch of seafood gumbo, then followed it with coffee and beignets at the historic Café du Monde (established in 1862). After that, we wandered around in the intermittent rain checking out the architecture.

Café du Monde's beignets, coffee, and water. The hipstamatic seems particularly suited to this cuisine.
