Hi, we are Terry & Jacinta from Australia. We came to NO for Jazzfest last year and want to come again next year. We would like to stay in your area as we met a group of locals (& returnees) last year and were invited to a party on the Bayou St Jean. They were a fantastic bunch of people and we spent the next night with many of them seeing Galactic & Cyril Neville on a River boat cruise. Our NO experience was fantastic because of the people we met. So we would prefer to stay with people who live in NO than a hotel. We would be coming to NO after another music festival in North Carolina.
