Cemeteries, cemeteries, glorious cemeteries. New Orleans is filled with them. They are old, creepy, and often decrepit and if you know me at all, you know those are the ones I love the best. Nikki lives across the street from one cemetery, another is just a block away. Of course we visited St. Louis I, as well. Here are some of my favorite photos.
Of course we had to pay our respects to Marie Laveau, the Voodo Queen of New Orleans. My offering was a small piece of my handmade paper with circles painted on it.
One of the places we visited on our final day in the city was the Sculpture Garden, located outside the New Orleans Museum of Art. The five acre garden is located in City Park and contains 57 sculptures! Here's just a few of the many pieces of art we saw.
And that sums up my wonderful, fabulous trip to New Orleans with my good friend Stephanie, visiting our good friend Nikki. Nikki showed us the ins and outs of the city, took us to places a tourist would never see, she graciously shared her secret haunts, and acted as the more extraordinary tour guide. I will eventually post the pages from my NOLA journal, which is still in process. Thanks for coming along.
