New Orleans
A Joyful City
25/01/2011

New Orleans is a city of Louisiana. It’s 4 times more populous than Nancy.
It’s a city surrounded by water (the Mississippi River, Lake Pontchartrain and many bayous, canals or waterways).

Weather

The weather is pleasant all year long butat the beginning of the spring and in autumn it is raining. Summers are warm and wet; hurricanes are dangerous conditions in New Orleans.
One on the particularity of the climate takes place in South Louisiana. There are swamps called the bayous where we can make tours in a custom built swamp boat to discover the beauty of the nature, observe alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria and many speciesof snakes.

History

This city was founded in 1718 by two French brothers: Jean Baptist Lemoyne de Bienville and Pierre Lemoyne. Then it became Spanish. 40 years later, it became French again, and then it’s sold to the USA.

Hurricane
Hurricane Katrina of 2005 was a costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the five deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the USA. More than 1,900 peoplelost their lives in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods, making it the deadliest U.S. hurricane since 1928. The damage was estimated at 81 billion dollars.
More than 80% of the city has been devastated.
After this disaster, the city became mostly white, because the black population moves to Chicago or Detroit, where they have found help (food, medical help, lodgment…)
It’s veryinteresting, to go visiting the destroyed quarter. You can also imagine the violence of the nature and imagine what the local population has lived. But don’t go there with many tourists; it’s very disturbing for the local population. It’s better to go there alone, talking to the local population, who are very open and welcoming.
The most important in New Orleans is the culture. So we will speakof the music, mainly the jazz, the traditional food, and the architectures. Of course, we will speak off the French influence on this state, for example the French Quarter or the Carnival.

New Orleans had a reputation as a city free and joyful, with its festivals, fine restaurants and dance.
In fact, New Orleans is the city who organized the most festivals in the world.

MARDI GRASThe carnival season officially begins each year on January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany or King's Day. Celebrations are concentrated for about two weeks before Fat Tuesday (or Mardi Gras in French); it’s the day before Ash Wednesday (mercredi des cendres).
They are organized by Carnival Krewe (crou). It’s private carnival club. Every Krewe (crous) participates financially. They are parading withfloat decorated, and traditionally throw beads and toys called “throws”.
The Twelfth Night Revelers, one of Carnival's oldest Krewes, holds a masked ball each year to mark the occasion.
The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold.
Purple = Justice 
Gold = Power  
Green = Faith
The largest and most elaborate parades take place the last five days of the season
