Lundi Gras :)

I barely woke up early that day. I could see some of the "left overs" from last night, hahaha. Everything was quiet and peaceful. I guess the whole city was still recovering from last night. I took a walk and was thinking I had Adam's bag and have to meet him later to give them back to him. I just arrived back home, when Heidi, my host, told me, Missy was in her way to pick me up to enjoy Lundi Gras!
What's Lundi Gras? Well, I just realized that the Monday before Mardi Gras, they have a relaxed day. Most of the people don't work and just go out during the day to enjoy an Open Festival at the Mississippi River. There are live music, food and the Zulu Parade!
It was a girly day. Just 4 girls out, enjoying the day, having some drinks, listening to good music and getting our faces painted in Jackson Square.
There was another meeting at home. To watch the other parades, having some drinks and food. I was trying to find Adam to give him his bag back, but couldn't find him. I even went to his friend's. It was fun, they recognized me and treated me as another friend ;) I just needed to remember saying: it's my 1st Mardi Gras, hahaha.
Finally we could meet. I gave him his bag and we kept on jumping from one spot to another, enjoying some parades. After that he asked me if I wanted to join him to Superior Grill. I have been there once before for dinner. This time was different, it was full of fun people, just enjoying big Margaritas or other drinks and having fun. We stayed there for a while hanging out with his school's friends. Then we went to the Columns Hotel. This was another party point too.
I was able to meet local people and enjoyed the day as a local girl. It was so much fun!
