I have put a video on this blog that I made in July of 2005 (exactly one week before Hurricane Katrina Hit New Orleans). I made this video for my Mom. She always wanted to go with me on my trips around the world, but since she couldn't I used to make these little clips to give her a feel for what the places were like. I made this one by simply holding the camera about shoulder height and just walking the length of Bourbon Street. This was about 5 o'clock in the afternoon - buy 9 pm this street easily has double the activity your going to see here. Enjoy:
The Voodoo Museum
There is a little shop just off of Bourbon Street (between Bourbon and Royal Streets) that is a real fun experience, the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum.The The Voodoo Museum is one of the most unique, and interesting, small museums in the country. Taking all the mysteries, the secrets, the history and folklore of rituals, zombies, of gris-gris, of Voodoo Queens and all that jazz, and putting it all in one place in the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter. The Voodoo Museum is a casual and curious experience intended to preserve the legacy of New Orleans’ Voodoo history and culture while educating and entertaining the visitor. The Voodoo Museum has been a fixture in New Orleans, and is a “must do” for visitors.
