The scope of the urban fabric of New Orleans is stunning.

Still i heard he was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans.

Well all of sudden NO looks familiar ... with Detriot, DT cluster color tone and architectural style. not in perfect mood. heard there are many abandoned skyscrapers down there.

Yes Slidell, I deeply loved the city, as soon as I got there. A week was not enough. It is a city that gives me emotions, I find New Orleans touching and engaging, it is rather difficult to describe. Feels like I want to hug the city

Mr de la Sucre, some areas are less maintained than others, but I do not remember seeing abandoned skyscrapers. In fact, most downtown highrises are not office towers, they are hotels, and they seem very busy.

Hmhm...



HMHM HMHMHM, God does this thing for real. I can tell.
Tell your creepy bigots. This is a cool picture.

My entire region (that of Paris) is served by optic-fiber by now, so there was no problem in uploading your supposedly large pictures over here. It is faster than I am at scrolling down.
But I think most of my country is still under poorer DSL connections.

However, some local internet providers are inventing tricks based on 4G, so even remote villages have faster options.

My concern is wireless telecommunication technologies are supposed to be unhealthy. I mean, I can't forget that experiment of a smartphone put next to a tomato plant...
Tomatoes really looked kinda sorry. It was truly creepy. That must hurt human cells like a motherfucking microwave. Never stick your phone to your ear, it would damage your brain. You'd better use some wire to talk to your smartphone.

Best is to spread "optical fiber" throughout all territories, including the most remote.
So everyone still can connect by healthier wires whenever possible.

Great pics! I haven't been to NO yet, oddly enough, but would like to visit. Nice beer choices too

Awesome collection including some real stunners.

NO is an odd mix of green, colorful people, colorful buildings, colorful music, intense poverty and decay, muddy water, and the ugliest skyline this side of the Eastern Bloc.

It's been too long since I was there.
