New Orleans, part 2

Just a few scenes from our first day in New Orleans.  I've got more coming, and hopefully some words to accompany them...One thing I will say, I learned the hard way that it is not traditional (or acceptable) to throw beads back to the people on floats in a parade.  They don't like that. 


  1. Looks like such a fun trip! I've never been and have been curious as to how things have changed since Katrina.

  2. There is one exception to the no tossing beads back rule- if you are near the end of the parade route and riders are begging you to give them something to throw, since they didn't buy enough or threw too fast, then its okay! Glad you enjoyed our city!
