New Orleans Night

We had New Orleans Night last night! This is an annual celebration in St. Gallen and is a crowded festive event. The weather was hot and so was the music! Five bands were set up in various areas of the Old Town playing jazz and blues in English. They had all the words but some of the rhythms were different enough to suggest that this is not the native music here. Jazz singer, Sydney Ellis, had it right tho'. Most of the bands haled from Germany and the best band, the Blues Boys, were set up right in front our building. We wandered around the various bands and food stalls, ate some tasty shish kebab and Indian curry then repaired to our roof where we could drink wine and enjoy the music above the fray.
