Among the many overwhelming things swarming around in my head this past week (the bittersweet sadness of leaving my old job, the anxiety and stress of moving to a new city, the haphazard strategizing that comes with unpacking my life…), the part of my mind that is attuned to all things magical and odd kept reminding me that it was Mardi Gras.
Alas, Cambridge is not New Orleans, but I was parading along in spirit with my pals Krista, Susanne, Andrew and Kristian, who all made my first experience there so fantastic. It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since I reported the story, but thankfully it lives on, having been published in several international editions of National Geographic Traveler this year, including the Dutch version, here. The English version is here, and you can also check out some of Krista’s photos of this year’s parades.
