the first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds - the cemeteries - and they're a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep... ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who've died and are now living in tombs. the past doesn't pass away so quickly here. you could be dead for a long time.
