We traveled Hwy 90 into NO to visit friends Joel and Katie. What life they lead! We were so lucky to have them as hosts in NOLA. They have a beautiful home in Northshore, just minutes north of the French Quarter and all of historic NO. From sailing on Friday nights to esteemed membership in Krewes (Muses and Hermès) who design and sponsor floats in annual carnival parades, these two and their family are not just part of the city, they have become the very fabric of the city. One popular activity during Carnival is to March in dragon costumes that they have personally designed and fabricated. How cool.
