Just for fun, I thought I'd show you post Mardi Gras that not everything in New Orleans is about parties and beads. In the middle of the French Quarter, on Jackson Square, is the beautiful St. Louis Cathedral. Its history is interesting, so, as my mama used to say, go look it up and read about it. It's a lovely place to visit and stands in stark contrast to all the revelry that takes place up the street. The juxtaposition of it all makes me giggle.
