I have looked at this book and savor the pictures from it. I lived in New Orleans for 13 years and can relate to every photo in the book. you would actually have to go to that wonderful city and see the Mardi Gras for the first time. i loved when Fat Tuesday rolled around . I could not wait to be in the crowds and be able to holler " throw me something mister!" I have visited Blaine Kern"s many times during the year while i lived there and took numerous friends and they were in awe.
If you have the chance,please at least look at the book ,even if you do not buy it and close your eyes and try to be there in your mind . Feel the beads and doubloons hitting your hands and feet. Smell the excitement in the air from the crowds.Being able to see stars and singers as king of a parade.
The enjoyment of Mardi Gras is something everyone should experience at least once in there lives.i would love to be back in the Big Easy to eat there wonderful food ,laze around at the Cafe Dumond and eat Beingets and drink chickory coffee,listen to someone playing the blues along the waterfront.
