The Difference Between Creole and Cajun

If you live in New Orleans the name Evangeline will conjure all sorts of pictures in your mind.  Evangeline was a Cajun.  A Cajun is not a Creole.  The difference between Creole and Cajun isn’t overly complicated but it does have some nuance.  Has New Orleans always been the way it is now?  Pretty much.  New Orleans is Creole.

Ms. Richardson, my assistant, has been asking me questions on video about New Orleans.  I never know what she is going to ask me.  We do this cold.  If I don’t have an answer I’ll say so.  If I do have an answer, I’ll talk about it for ten minutes or so.  Some people call me the most interesting man in New Orleans.  My reputation colors me a raconteur extraordinaire.  I know a lot of things about New Orleans.  I like to share.

When you are ready to visit New Orleans, you have found the best place to stay.  I don’t say that.  TripAdvisor has been saying it since April, 2014.  TripAdvisor has also called La Belle Esplanade the #2 place to stay in the United States and the #16 place to stay in the world. Think of all the small hotels there are in the world.  La Belle Esplanade is #16.  To learn more about what it is like to make our neighborhood your New Orleans headquarters while you visit this wonderful city we call home, click here, or, click here, or, click here.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our part of New Orleans with you,

Saturday, July 27, 2019.  Nothing much happened this lazy summer New Orleans day, today.  Life went by.  Life went amiably by today.  What a day.  What a great New Orleans today.  Catch a which and get your good self down to New Orleans.  Make some good memories that will last you the rest of your life.
