Life in the French Quarter

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.

Nice photograph, Steve. I like carriages and take them to tour cities whenever we go to one.

The sky looks almost surreal in this photo, and I like how it contrasts with the carriage. I visited NO maybe ten years ago with my sweetie, and we're still talking about that trip.

That's French life indeed. We don't have to apologize for that as "our" President used to do so often abroad.
