|Greetings from New Orleans.|
A Week in New Orleans heals all wounds.
Even if you're not hurting, a week in New Orleans will make you feel better. No one ever says their visit to New Orleans is too long. The longer you stay, the more you'll realize how much more there is to discover in this wonderful city we call home. There are angels in the details.

I live here. What would I do with a week in New Orleans? Here is what I did on Monday:
This past Monday, I had lunch at Café Minh after I went to the Mid-City Branch of the New Orleans Public Library across the street.
Before I went to the Library, I went to Meyer the Hatter to see what new straw hats had arrived from Dobbs in the most recent shipment.
After lunch, I went to see the new exhibit at the New Orleans Museum of Art at the end of Esplanade Avenue, about a mile's picturesque stroll from La Belle Esplanade. I lingered in the permanent collection's gallery dedicated to Romanticism and Symbolism.
Then, Frau Schmitt and I went to the movies. We saw Downton Abbey. Frau Schmitt, who is the better half of this operation knows all about Downton Abbey. I didn't know anything about it when I was buying the popcorn. I really enjoyed the film. I am now a confirmed Downton Abbey fan. The movie was playing at The Broad Theater, around the corner from our inn. How many places do you know that can say, "We have a new movie theater in our neighborhood." New Orleans is like that.
One day in New Orleans contains the stuff from which lifetime good memories are made. Imagine a week in this magical city. Better yet, don't imagine it, visit New Orleans for a week. You won't regret it. If you are bored in New Orleans, you should see a doctor.

A word from our sponsor: If you are going to spend a week in New Orleans, we can think of no better place to stay than La Belle Esplanade. Ranked the #1 small hotel in New Orleans since April 2014, and #2 in the United States----AND, #16 in the world. Check out our website and make a reservation. La Belle only has five suites so plan ahead and choose wisely.
