Executive Editor Anne Banas fell in love with the spirit of New Orleans this last year. "Tourism is definitely coming back to New Orleans—Jazz, beignets, Creole cuisine, and all—especially in the French Quarter. I was so inspired during an April visit that I planned a second trip in June to not only re-experience the tourist areas but also to work on a Habitat for Humanity house in still Katrina-devastated Central City."
