Having been to New Orleans once and on the Naples gondola rides twice, I really enjoyed the July 16 Travel Section ("New Orleans" and "Gondolas Add a Bit of Italy to Naples"). It is almost as much fun reading about places one has already been to as it is reading about places one hopes to visit. The gondola rides are a delight, and my husband can certainly vouch for the pepper in K-Paul's Cajun martini in New Orleans. Wow! Many thanks to Travel Editor Jerry Hulse and to Tom and Michele Grimm.
