New Orleans: Mardi Gras Day
As I was walking my dogs yesterday at 8am, I could feel the energy in the city of New Orleans. One by one, two by two or in groups... people were steadily streaming towards the heart of the French Quarter in costume. By noon, the epicenter of the day was the Bourbon Street Awards hosted by Bianca Del Rio at Bourbon St. and St. Ann.
From 11am until 7pm, E.Shrew and I celebrated our fourth straight day of Mardi Gras in New Orleans together. We had lots of fun. I even took out my thang for beads many times. I think the crowd's reaction made E.Shrew proud each time. He was a little embarrassed by my behavior, but proud nonetheless.
