Yesterday, friends and I went and explored the French Quarter on the last day of Carnival. It was really crazy. People drinking on the streets. Lot of R-rates bits on display. I even wore a semi colorful dress (but didn't get a good picture). But look at those beads:
Fun fact: you do not have to show anyone your R-rated bits to get these. The folks sitting in balconies just like to throw them at the street level revelers. I got hit in the head a few times with beads, I feel like I deserved them. I don't know if I can take them back, though.
I also saw a parade before hitting Bourbon St. They had these great floats. On the back was a flatbed, some more decorations and, of course, people throwing beads in elaborate costumes.
