Lafayette Cemetery, Garden District, New Orleans, 2017

The  city is so far below sea level that, to avoid flooding problems, the graveyards had to be built with mini-mausoleums—all above ground. No one in Lafayette Cemetery gets “buried”—unsettling, isn’t it? Photographer unknown. (RivertoRiver1818/tumblr)

  1. Thanks! I appreciate the cool ideas of things to see and do there. There are days when I wish that I lived somewhere like New Orleans. I am a big fan of blues, jazz, and zydeco music. Obviously Anne Rice has found it a good place to write. The energy where I live is pretty dead in the wrong way. Just people sort of hanging about and waiting to die.
