The O.G. Mixed Culture - Jamie

We've been spending the last couple of days in New Orleans and it's been a real nice time. Aside from beautiful weather, rich foods and meeting up with friends it's been great to experience a bit of New Orleans culture.

I think a great highlight for most of us was yesterday's Creole History walking tour of the French Quarter. None of us had such an understanding of what history and special spot in greater 'Society' culture Creoles once held in these parts and it was very interesting to hear how the concept of 'what is Creole' has changed of over the years.

But really it's great to think that there is a historical legacy of a widely mixed population that was not just recognized by the mainstream, but even respected. Imagine that...
