Mardi Gras returns to New Orleans

Life comes back to New Orleans.

A week so after Katrina hit I mentioned to my friend at work Mardi Gras would happen in 2006. He laughed at me.

Mardi Gras is as big as Easter or Christmas in New Orleans

Tens of thousands of revellers are gathering in New Orleans for the climax of the first Mardi Gras since Hurricane Katrina struck six months ago.

The festivities reach their height on Tuesday when tourists and locals line the streets to cheer on the parades.
