A New Orlean's Moment
New Orleansâ€™s is one of those towns where the unexpected happens. Sometimes it's riotously unexpected, sometimes more subtle. As an example I offer up the cafe I dined in last night. Tired from a long day, a colleague and I went decided to dine in the hotel. Like many restaurants in NOLA, this one's dining room walls were adorned with an impressionist mural of French street scenes. The only problem was that it was a Thai restaurant. Interestingly enough, someone had painted on little conical Chinese hats on the Frenchmen in the mural. Funny and odd, just like this town.
