|Craziness at the museum|
During French colonial days, escaped slaves mixed up with the local Indians and this is the crazy concoction that resulted - vibrantly colored feathers and beads and frenzied dances to a never ending Afro-American beat. It's hard to describe, but difficult to forget.
The museum crowd went wild.
I saw a facebook friend at a recent book signing. She and I met on Mardi Gras Super Sunday, St. Joseph's Day, standing at the gate where all the tribes gather in Taylor Park in Central City. I took 200 photos; she took 300 and we could have taken even more.
