Here are some things I did on Sunday and Monday, told through photographs.
|An awesome cemetery! Bodies are put in mausoleums because otherwise the water in the ground pushes traditional burials above ground.|
|Some of the gifts put at the burial place of Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau.|
|See what I mean about the flooding and the high amounts of water in the cemeteries!|
|Such a wide variety of tombs.|
|First, I had to get some beignets.|
|Then, I toured the fabulous Evergreen Plantation!|
|It felt like it came out of a history book!|
|Here are some slave cabins--not reproductions! It was so cool to see.|
|The plantation from the road.|
|Then, I had lunch at the FABULOUS Ruby Slipper Cafe. Seriously. It was the best food I had that entire trip. (Their grits are stunning!)|
|Then, I went on some cemetery-photographing escapades. I loved it.|
|The gorgeous cathedral.|
|French Quarter Tour!|
So on the first two days, I basically did all of this. I enjoyed everything!
