While in New Orleans, I saw this instrument. It looks strange and not like something that would sound good. How wrong I was. It actually makes a beautiful music.
While walking around the Lafayette Cemetery I have noticed trinkets and random things left on a lot of the graves. I was told by another person exploring this place, they were the things the dead ones loved, were mostly remembered by.
You could find: shoes, stones, toys, army pins, and many more. I found it all very fascinating. This cemetery and the French Quarter Parade (see earlier post on the parade) were my favorite parts of this trip.
P.S. Can somebody tell me if I was told correctly what these things mean? Why do people leave them on the graves in New Orleans?
