Postcards from New Orleans Mardi Gras

New Orleans Mardi Gras GalleryThis week I saw Mardi Gras in New Orleans and it was everything that I expected it to be... crowded streets, drunken party people, strange costumes, elaborate floats and lots of tasty food. This was my third time back to N.O. with my wife, but the first time during this celebration. It is definitely worth seeing at least once.

The biggest shock of the trip was not seeing naked people in the streets or celebrities, but my germ-phobic wife picking up stacks of mardi gras beads that had been thrown in the filthy streets. Here is a gallery of the weekend.
