Cemeteries Are Chic
Well hello again, I apologize for my absence recently…I’ve been pretty busy. Aside from my usual work life, I took a little trip with Vinny to New Orleans, it was magical. I had never been to New Orleans before which is surprising considering how close it is and how mysterious the city claims to be (I love all things mystery). So naturally I set out on a field trip to the St.Louis Cemetery, yes the one where the VooDoo Queen Marie Laveau is buried. And one more not so surprising thing happened, we took blog photos in the middle of the cemetery. The truth is that I find nothing scary about places like this, they amaze me and hold my interest longer than most things in this world. There are a million reasons to visit New Orleans, but the stories and ghosts that haunt the city are really what got me. If you are in Texas I suggest taking the 8 hour road trip (from San Antonio/Austin) across the Bayous and stay a weekend wandering the streets of New Orleans…it’s worth it.
“The ghosts race towards the light, you can almost hear the heavy breathing spirits, all determined to get somewhere. New Orleans, unlike a lot of those places you go back to and that don’t have the magic anymore, still has got it.” – Bob Dylan
