FC: Christmas in New Orleans By: Thomas Prince |

1: New Orleans is a city full of culture, music, and food, lots of food. Since it has been discovered by French explorers in 1699, New Orleans has been one of the most interesting cities in America. Because of it's convenient location near the gulf of Mexico, Nola serves as a major trading port for all kinds of merchandise. |

2: New Orleans was discovered in 1699 by Pierre Le Moyne, Sier d'Iberville Baptiste Le Moyne and Sier de Bienville. It was called the crescent city because of its shape along the Mississippi River. New Orleans was also the city where Andrew Jackson and the U.S army defeated the British army in the last major battle of the War of 1812. |

3: Places to go | New Orleans is full of attractions. here is a list of places you might want to go when visiting | -The French Quarter Segway tour -Bayou airboat rides -Bourbon Street -Live music 7 nights a week at the Funky Pirate -Karaoke at Cat's Meow -Football games and other events at the Super Dome | |

7: Geography | | New Orleans is a city in southeast Louisiana. It lies just south of Lake Pontchartrain, north of the Mississippi River, and west of Lake Borgna.Here is a road map of the city.

8: Geography | If you are going to be traveling to New Orleans I would suggest packing warm clothes. It is very humid in Louisiana. For those who don't like hot sweaty summers, go during the winter where it is a mild 50 degrees. No matter what time of the year you go, it is almost a guarantee that any fun loving person will have a blast in the crescent city! |

9: The Culture | New Orleans is a true example of a melting pot in terms of diversity. There is no minority or majority. People speak all kinds of languages in the Big Easy including French, Vietnamese, Spanish, and "southern talk". You can't find another city with as much diversity and variety of food either. Someone could easily spend a whole weekend just visiting the different restaurants! |

10: Misc. Information | NOLA has been home to countless musical artists including Lil Wayne, Louis Armstrong, and Harry Connick Jr. It was literally the birthplace of jazz. Jazz is a style of music that became popular in the south in the early 20th century. There really isn't a definition of jazz because there are so many types! If you're looking for jazz, New Orleans is the place to go. |

11: Journal Entry #1 | Dear Journal, Today was a great first day in New Orleans! I have so much planned for this week I don't know if I can write it all. Anyways I'll start on what I did today. After getting off the plane from Kansas City, I took a cab to my hotel, The French Market Inn. Wow! the people are just so nice down here... It's as if I'm Part of the family or something. After chatting with the hotel staff I took a walk through The French Quarter. Did you know it is the oldest neighborhood in the Crescent City? It is truly a piece of American History. Tomorrow I will be visiting the museums that this city has to offer. Well, I'm off to bed. I will write tomorrow all about my adventures. |

12: Journal Entry #2 | Dear Journal, This trip just keeps getting better and better. Today I went on the French Quarter Segway tour. My group and I rode in those weird looking, two wheeled things that you see rich people using. The only thing better than visiting The French Quarter is rolling around The French Quarter in a segway! After that I walked down to get lunch at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Cafe. It was probably the best food I've ever had just saying. The shrimp was bigger than my fist! Would you ever believe such a thing? Well I've got to go now. Tonight I will go going to Mid City Lanes to bowl. I'll write tomorrow. |

13: Journal Entry #3 | Dear Journal, I'm not sure if I ever want to leave New Orleans now. The food is great, people are nice, and I just love the whole atmosphere. Not to mention the city is full of history. Today I went to the Robert E. Lee Monument and The Cabildo in Jackson Square. I had no idea that Robert E. Lee was the son of a Revolutionary War officer and he also served in the Mexican American War. Did you know that The Calbido served as a city hall, courthouse, and a prison? It was also where Thomas Jefferson bought the Louisiana Purchase. I feel so much smarter now. Too bad tomorrows my last day here. I would really like to stay longer... but oh well I'm kind of missing home. I will write tomorrow night. |

14: Journal Entry #4 | Dear Journal, Since this was my last day and I haven't really got out of the city I decided to visit the swamp. It's like a whole new world out there! Did you know there are over 50 types of animals in the swamp? I didn't either! I had a lot of fun this week and I learned a whole lot. Well I'm off to bed now. I have an early morning flight so I have to go. Bye now. |

15: New Orleans and Kansas City: Comparing and Contrasting | New Orleans And Kansas City are a lot alike but also very different at the same time. They both have strong influences over the rest of the country like jazz and their food. NOLA and KC both have very diverse groups of people. On the other hand, New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz while KC is where jazz "grew up" and came to what it is today. Also, Kansas City can be a lot colder than New Orleans. | |

16: Cause and Effect | My journey to New Orleans has definitely changed me for the better. It opened up my eyes to a whole new part of the world that I would not have seen in any other city. I now enjoy shrimp and always have a craving for BBQ! Visiting NOLA has also gave me a new perspective on people who aren't as fortunate as me. When I saw the neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Katrina I realized that it could be worse and I shouldn't take things for granted. This journey has probably had the greatest impact on my life and I cannot wait to come back! |

17: Conclusion | New Orleans is a very fun city. You can do just about anything you want! There is great music, delicious food, and rich history just waiting to be discovered. |
