I take the bus to the Mardi Gras parades

February 9, 2024

“I take the bus to the Mardi Gras parades. I left my house at 3:30 this afternoon. I got off the bus and walked to my spot for every parade. I’m a little dizzy from walking because I have high blood pressure. After the parade, I’ll catch the last bus home. I couldn’t come to Mardi Gras without the bus–I’d have to walk three miles. I take the bus everywhere. It’s not too hard.

My auntie brought me to Mardi Gras when I was a kid. My grandmama and great-grandmama helped raise me. We all stayed in the same house. All of them are gone. Now it’s just me coming to the parades.”
