New Orleans, Louisiana United States of America, 2003

I'm happy to be able to say that I saw the city before it was tragically destroyed by Katrina (and incompetence).

In many ways, it was a parody of itself as so many cities become when they develop an image and reputation which they then have to adopt, regardless of how true it was to start of with.

Having said that, it was fun place to visit and the food was certainly worth the trip, though if you've ever been there in summer, may the gods have mercy on you: it is like living in a steamroom.
