For the Rainbow Lady's Mardi Gras challenge.
Have you ever wondered what happens to all of the beads after Mardi Gras?

I've never been to Mardi Gras but I did spend a glorious few
days in New Orleans. Years ago we took a Commordore Cruise
that departed from New Orleans and added on 4 days in
New Orleans for sightseeing.
By today's cruise standards
this line surely wouldn't measure up. But, we thoroughly
enjoyed our cruise experience with them. Commodore has since
gone bankrupt and the Enchanted Isle was scrapped in 2004.
If you ever get the chance to visit New Orleans I highly recommend it.
Beautiful sites, wonderful music and marvelous food.
When we visit a new city we like to tour the city. Sometimes
we use a Tour Group but most times we take public transportation.
One of the best things we did was take the St. Charles Ave
Streetcar thru the Garden District of New Orleans.
It was a great way to explore.
Even a New Orleans cemetery is beautiful
Did I mention food?

Beautiful and yummy, too.
