Fats Domino's Piano

Fats Domino’s White Piano

When New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Fats Domino’s house was submerged and his Steinway piano remained under water for several weeks. It was later recovered and restored, and can now be seen at the New Orleans Jazz Museum.

Bourbon Orleans Hotel

Hotel Lobby, New Orleans

Last time I was in New Orleans I stayed at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. It used to be a ballroom, then a convent and orphanage, and now it’s a nice hotel with a collection of ghost stories to amuse the tourists.
