I expected a mad house at the airport, but it was rather sedate. There weren’t many people coming or going, and my flight was relatively uneventful.
Mardi Gras was a great experience, thanks to the amazing generosity and hospitality of the Hevrons. I had originally envisioned Mardi Gras as a Bourbon Street Amateur Hour puke-o-rama, but the scene Uptown was very family oriented and just a lot of fun. The whole vibe was very different from the manic insanity of Jazz Fest, but I think J-R said it best when he described it as “the moveable feast.” Our party just kept rolling down the track, and it was a helluva ride. I will definitely be back.
