Mid-City Bonfire January 2, 2009Posted by The Typist in Mid-City, New Orleans, NOLA.
In spite of the new configuration of a bonfire in a firebox surrounded by police barricades, my 13-year old son and I managed to run (ok, jog and sometimes walk as fast as we could through the crowds and around all the emergency vehicles) three times around the bonfire.
I kept looking for any sign of other people trying, but did not spot anyone.
All your good luck is belong to us.
Later I will organize some thoughts about the bonfire and New Year, but staying at Mick’s until 3 a.m. then getting up to help clean up the neutral ground left me pretty drained out yesterday, and today is back to work.
