Laissez les bon temps roules

It’s been years since I’ve been back home to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.

I’ve attended just one post Katrina, after the Saints won the Super Bowl in 2010.

An unforgettable 48 hours.

This Carnival season I’m feeling particularly nostalgic while watching parade and crawfish boil photos flood the web.  Don’t even get me started on the music lineup!

Luckily here in Buenos Aires we’re granted a four-day weekend as our neighboring country celebrates from dusk to dawn.

SI, there are minor festivities throughout BA, but nothing compared to the colors and excitement that are happening in Rio & New Orleans this weekend.

A big beso to New Orleans.  I’ll be thinking of you while lounging in the pool and drinking a fat cup of Torrontés.

As us New Orleanians say, laissez les bon tempos roules.
