Shopping New Orleans. Which would you rather have guiding you through the darkness? Crab? Crawfish? Lobster? Hummingbird?

That's the problem with the French Market in the French Quarter of the Crescent City -- there's too much to choose from. You can spend hours dreaming and shopping. Did I say problem? No problem here. It's one of my favorite pastimes.

Maybe that's why it's the oldest community market it the U.S. -- it keeps dreams alive.

Hmmm...no contest, I'll take the hummingbird. Don't like the scorpion at all, but the work is great. I love to shop too and its always fun to find that little unique something.

How strange. I don't know I'd want one of this. Think,I'd look out of the corner of my eye and scare myself to death. Fascinating tho.
