Let me take you to the Mardi Gras

Hurry take me to the Mardi Gras

In the city of my dreams

You can legalize your lows

You can wear your summer clothes

In the New Orleans

And I will lay my burden down

Rest my head upon that shore

And when I wear that starry crown

I won't be wanting anymore

Take your burdens to the Mardi Gras

Let the music wash your soul

You can mingle in the street

You can jingle to the beat of Jelly Roll"

- Paul Simon

We caught the parade of the Mystic Krewe of Barkus, rolling in the French Quarter.

UPDATE: 3/5/2011 - Thanks to the wonderful Magee family for their beautiful Avatar costumes in the first photo!

I'll skip Mardi Gras because I don't like crowds, but I LOVE New Orleans. Disneyland for adults, my husband calls it.
