So much going on here in New Orleans this week. First, there is the Mardi Gras celebration that goes on throughout lent. Then, there are all the Superbowl activities taking place before Sunday's game. (Mardi Gras is temporarily put on hold for Superbowl week.) With so much happening, the police are out in force. They are everywhere.
Since we arrived here last Tuesday, we've had a chance to see some of the Mardi Gras partying.
