    New Orleans is mostly on my bucket list – because I LOVE Cajun food and when I am there I am going to be spending all of my money on food!

      I love cajun food as well. I can not get it as I would like in Texas, but I indulge when I travel home to Louisiana.

    LOVE the colors. I’ve been to Jamaica and it reminds me of this. So festive and alive. I’m getting to visit New Orleans in February and look forward to looking around

      Awesome. I hope you get a chance to experience Mardi Gras, if not there is a Jerk Chicken festival the latter part of the month. Hope you have a good time.

    I have never been to a Caribbean Carnival but I bet the food and music are both awesome! Tell me please, how are the dancers covered in baby powder and baby oil? Or is it one or the other?

      It can be one or the other. In certain events, it can be both. Paint is also used. It’s always festive.

    I’ve always wanted to go to new orleans! I feel like it’s one of the few places in the country that have a rich culture and a really different way of life from the rest of the country.

    Now this is the kind of Carnaval I’d want to go to. We have it in Spain too. However people think they can just be whatever they want. The costumes can get rather offensive. I hate that part.
