•• NOLA day 3 part 2 •• Thanks Josiah for dragging me to a playoff game! I am officially a Saints fan for life- I have had my initiation & met my people haha WHO DAT! I still don’t understand what the hell is going on in American football but dang isn’t it fun! I’ll be a pro before you know it!
A day of fascinating cemeteries, good coffee (thanks sprudge), found an Aussie pub, good company & a freaking good game! #gosaints
•• NOLA day 3 part 1 •• FUNFACT: all people buried here are in crypts or mausoleums because New Orleans is built on a swamp, below sea level. Back in the day, when it flood, coffins would rise to the surface because of the air inside them, making a gruesome scene!!! They then attempted drilling holes in the coffins but that interferes with decomposition & made things very unsanitary.... leading them to the solution of crypts.
