Carnival season is in full swing around the world, and last year we were in New Orleans as neighborhoods donned their finery for full-on Mardi Gras. Fleurs-de-lis and feathered masks of purple, green, and gold were hung from the leaded glass doorways of the grandest mansions to the humble cypress doors of the tiniest shotguns.
We wandered the streets of the Garden District, strolled Magazine Street and the Irish Channel, then wove our way through Uptown and savored the ambience.
Today we’re in Morelia, Mexico where they are gearing up for Carnival. We’re not sure what to expect, but we’re looking forward to the festivities.
And as always, Laissez les bons temps rouler!
