Cat du Monde
A visit to New Orleans wouldn't be
complete without a stop for café au lait
(coffee & chicory with boiled milk)
and beignets (fried dough with powdered
sugar) at Café du Monde in the French Quarter.
Chicory was added to New Orleans
coffee at the time of the Civil War
due to the scarcity of the coffee bean
and has been a custom ever since.

Cat Tuesday
Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), with its traditions,
was brought to Louisiana by the French
in the 1700s. As a Christian observance,
it was marked by a day of frolicking
and feasting in preparation for Ash Wednesday,
the beginning of the Lenten season of fasting
and abstinence. Of course, the fun-loving
people of Louisiana expanded the celebration
from one day to two weeks, it's date depending
on Easter Sunday. Mardi Gras in New Orleans
is a world-famous period of celebration
that has to be seen to be believed.

Marie Minou
St. Louis No. 1 dates back to 1789
and is the oldest surviving cemetery
in New Orleans. The tombs in this
famous cemetery were originally constructed
of soft red brick and were later covered
with plaster and paint to preserve them
from the elements. Even the walls
of St. Louis No. 1 were used for burial
since high ground was at a premium.
The old wall burial places are referred
to as "wall ovens" because they resemble
ovens for baking bread. Among the numerous
famous and infamous people who have
been buried at St. Louis No. 1 cemetery
is Marie Laveau, New Orleans' most notorious
voodoo queen. Click on picture for details.
