      Nice story! Really cool that this tradition could be adapted. But a “float” is assumed to be common knowledge, didn’t know what it was, only got an idea halfway through the article! The picture slides intro on the original site helped afterwards.

      Amazing photos! Akasha’s pictures make me want to pack up and find the glorious people she captures in real moments. I love the idea of a walking house tour.

      A spectacular story of resilience with lots of Mardi Gras cultural history that I did not know.

      The photos are excellent!! The photog, Akashi Rabut, is my brother’s girlfriend. 👏😃
