"Looking good Baby,looking good!"
There is an exhilarating emphoria you feel when you enter the city of New Orleans, that makes you quiver with the intoxication of being in the presence of life enjoying itself.This is what the locals call the Spirit of New Orleans, and her power of seduction is overwhelming.It can be found in her flavorsome food,her
melodious sounds, her exquisite beauty and her charm, but most of all it lives in the hearts of those lucky enough to call New Orleans home.
Mardi Gras Indians, one of America's most important traditional African-American cultures, have changed little over the past 250 years in New Orleans.

They are proud societies who have conserved and transmitted the spirit and vitality of African music and art, and the cultural memory of myth and ritual.
You will learn something about New Orleans architecture, language, ethnic groups and such catastrophes as the occasional epidemics of yellow fever.
The perhaps the most compelling cultural influence off all came from the cultivated Creoles, who were a product of the merging of French and Spanish settlers.
Eventually acquiring the title,
"European Queen of the Mississippi."
