I realize that this is a bit late, but I did make a short video of my visit to the Mardi Gras at the Soulard in St. Louis. Find it below so that you can appreciate the crowd. And the crowd you can see here is not even almost a tenth of the whole population of visitors on that day. I wonder how wild it would have been had it taken place in the summer.
My report of the event appeared in the Nigerian newspaper 234Next last week Friday. Find it here. This was my first time of being published in that newspaper.
