Christmas Season Travel Report: A Balmy Winter Day in New Orleans (And It’s My Birthday)

Drag Queen
<Why, hello!> she said. Just another balmy Winter day in NOLA.
     Today is a balmy Winter day in New Orleans. Mornings in this city feel hazy and not quite woken up. It’s a city of the nighttime and in the morning everyone’s either leaving a bar to go home or someone’s yawning and stretching, trying to come alive. Here are pictures I took of friends and me coming alive in this crescent 🌙 city. It’s also my birthday today. I’m forty years old. Or, forty years young — as we like to say it.

I’m traveling with two teacher friends of mine - Michelle and Lauren. They both convinced me it would be a good idea to celebrate Winter break and my birthday in New Orleans. So here we are at the Palace CafĂ© on Canal Street. 
Trio of Friends
I have two old friends from New Orleans, Tony, and AndrĂ© to share the day. That’s me in the middle of the photo. It’s refreshing to see familiar faces in a familiar city. I’m happy. Let me know in the comments if you can read my shirt.
