After Advanced Training in Venice, 15 stalwart folks took on the peril's of N'Awlins.
The flight to get there was shorter than last year, «whew»
Day 1: Getting There.
We tried to travel light. Tried being the operative word.
Once we got settled in, we checked out the hotel,
We made some new friends.
and checked out the town.
And then it was time to get out of our clothes... and into our costumes!!
Now when we do Mardi Gras, we do it right! (spoke the Bourbon St. virgin)
The first night out, and we were swingin'!! Swing Kids was the theme, gathering beads was the theme!
The parade was... well, to get it right, we need to pluralize that. PARADES!!!
The Knights of Babylon ,
The Knights of Chaos ,
and the lovely Muses! !
We watched the parades. (You can find images for them anywhere.) Chanted with the tubas, and made new friends!
Then we let Mama's take care of us the rest of the evening.
Of course, leaving Mama's at 2 am did not mean the night was over.
Then day one ended.
On to another day, move along li'l doh-ghee!
