Ah, yes it is life in the Quarter! On the street, above the street, by foot, by buggy. Strutting, strolling, at a trot, but certainly not at car-driving speeds. It's a carefree, life-in-the-moment, involved, smiling, comfortable time. If you're a people watcher or a people who likes to get watched, this is your stage.
Life in the Quarter. Rouler les bon temps. Rouler. C'est la vie. After all, Louisiana was founded in 1699 --- on Mardi Gras Day: that's joie de vivre.
