There is more to New Orleans than just bars and beads.
It’s also about ghosts…in bars.
Blarney and I took a ghost tour that stopped at a haunted bar. Awesomeness. That bar was called LaFitte’s and was owned by a pirate. Rrrrrr….
We went back to see it in the daylight…where I saw this in the courtyard:
We also visited the grave of VooDoo Queen Marie Laveau. Here. Educate yourself.
New Orleans Cemetery Fun Fact #1: Nicholas Cage will be buried in the same cemetery as the VooDoo Queen. His grave is a pyramid.
New Orleans Cemetery Fun Fact #2: When the caretaker offers a tour and then locks you in the cemetery, don’t panic because OH-MY-GOD-YOU’RE-LOCKED-IN-A-CEMETERY-NEXT-TO-THE-PROJECTS-WITH-A-STRANGE-MAN-WHO-MAY-SACRIFICE-YOU-TO-THE-VOODOO-QUEEN. He’s just keeping the ghosts in and the hoodlums out.
I was afraid to take a picture of the VooDoo Queen’s grave, but I did buy lots of VooDoo Dolls.
