The morning was spent with Golden and then we had a free afternoon. I took a tour of Graveyard #1. This is the second oldest cemetery in New Orleans built in 1789
In New Orleans they can’t bury their deceased people as they are too close to the water table. They have above ground tombs. Once a person dies, they place them in a pine box inside and seal it up for a year and a day. The temperature reaches 300 degrees and it cooks the body. Once they open up the crypt they take the bones and the ash that is left and pulverise it before putting it back in a shaft in the back of the tomb.
Voodoo queen Marie Laveau is buried here and Actor Nicolas Cage also has a tomb here.
Tried another Beinyet and then back to the hotel for a show before dinner.
Golden Paints took us down the river on the Steamboat Natchez for dinner.
After dinner we listened to a Jazz band as we went down the Mississippi river.
This has been a really amazing experience.
