Last day in New Orleans: a ghostly good time! by Ann Treacy

I’m always slow getting the last vacation post online – especially if the vacation ends with a bumpy flight home. The amazing thing about our time in New Orleans was the little rain we saw. Given that there were predicting a tropical storm a few days earlier – we got lucky. We spent the day walking. The girls like to shop and see voodoo museums. I’m happy to just walk. So that’s what we did with most of the day.

We did a walking ghost tour at night. The tour guide was very good – very enthusiastic and she knew so much. I should make the girls type up the stories for me; they remember them so much better than I do. I know it was our second time hearing some of the stories and still I barely remember. New Orleans is/was very Catholic. It’s interesting to hear how often that’s a factor. The church has so many rule and then so many rules to get around the original rules but mostly designed to keep comfortable people comfortable and keep other people keeping them comfortable by basing laws on race, color, gender and religion. We heard stories of immigrants working as domestic help being tortured mercilessly and a woman being dying naked and cold to convince her boyfriend to marry her. (He got drunk and forgot that she was out on the roof proving her point.) So many sad stories in a town where the live between living and dead seems so blurred.
