Mardi Gras in New Orleans is known around the world for many things, but all good things must eventually face the morning after. In New Orleans, that does not mean what you think.

New Orleans Mardi Gras is known around the world for many things, but we seldom get to see the morning after. And for good reason.
At night at the corner and Bourbon Street and St Peter you can see a mass of humanity filling the streets. The girls (and some guys) gladly flash their boobies for the free necklaces that are thrown from the balconies.
By early evening, you can already see the start of the paper and rubbish (and necklaces) littering the streets, but it is not until daylight rears its head that the full scope of the carnage is really visible.
As you will see, a team of rubbish disposal artists hit the streets and with the help of a bevy of machinery, they collect and dispose of the rubbish.
You will not believe just how much they collect! One can only shake their heads and mutter, softly: WFT.
The corner of Bourbon and St. Peter, the Krazy Korner is one of the best places to enjoy New Orleans rhythm and blues and good times!
