The French Quarter

After a couple of days (and nights) exploring New Orleans I finally got my bearings and had checked off the major tourist sites and had some time to wander around and sketch.

The French and Spanish lineage is so very strong in the French Quarter of the city, that I expected people to be speaking another language.

Balconies were were pervasive on the larger buildings and the smaller homes all had shutters.  Many of them had delightful courtyards , some  with pools which you could peak into through the gates.
