WPC: Unusual

“Different or strange in a way that attracts attention.”


Mardi Gras in New Orleans is the most unusual experience by far. If you’ve ever seen Halloweentown, that sums it up pretty accurately. I swear the residents of NOLA literally turn into creatures during Mardi Gras. There were no humans on Bourbon Street besides my friend and myself. Even the people who weren’t performers or entertainers were decked out in costumes. It reminded me of Carnival in Brazil, although not nearly as classy.


This is definitely a sight to see. Everyone in Louisiana walks around drunk pretty much all of February. Their life that whole month is like a Kendrick Lamar song – “Wake up, drink. Get ready, drink. Eat breakfast, drink. Work out, drink. Lunch, drink. Party, drink. Take a shot, drink. Throw up, drink.” I couldn’t keep up. I was more impressed with the dozens of parades.

New Orleans is definitely one of those cities like Salem, Massachusetts where you just get creepy vibes from the second you step foot in town. There are voodoo shops and cemeteries everywhere, old town historical buildings, nonhuman Mardi Gras residents, etc. It fits the ‘unusual’ description perfectly, and the people who live there are proud of it!

  1. It looked like quite the Mardi Gras celebration, and what a turnout. Great weather too and lovely that so many got into the spirit of the event. Looks like a lot of fun. Didn’t know that New Orleans was a town with creepy vibes and cemeteries and all things spooky is pretty common. I’ll keep that in mind if I choose to visit one day. I’m not scared of spooky but if something out of the ordinary happens one too many times – think living in a haunted hotel and things go bump in the night – then I’d be a bit more careful šŸ˜€

    1. Yes but I love things like that! So I love New Orleans and Salem, plus the food in NOLA is to die for. Give it a visit, you’ll enjoy it for sure. It’s a lively and fun environment to be in. Thanks for your comment Mabel!

  2. I’ve never been to New Orleans myself, but I didn’t think of voodoo shops and cemeteries. I usually think of “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Hahah.
