In 1990, New Orleans and me… we looked like this:

This weekend, I’m Louisiana bound again. So we’ll see how much things have changed!

To set the mood, some New Orleans tunes: jazz, r&b, funk… you know the drill. I pulled together a few fave songs for the road. You can listen, too — just check out the playlist here: Down to New Orleans by Kate on Grooveshark

Any other New Orleans music suggestions out there? Let me know in the comments!

Washington, DC

Until last year, I had never been to the US capital. It was a place I’d always wanted to visit, but somehow never had the chance.

And now that I’ve seen it, I know that I love it. The people, the bustle, the food, the museums, the news crews – this city has a lot of excitement packed in.

There’s lots of marble everywhere…

And neoclassical architecture…

There are the famous monuments visible in the heart of the city…

Downtown, the area is filled with tourists, souvenirs, activists, and food:

I had a great time in DC! Have you been? What’s your favorite memory about a trip to the capital? : )
