Vacation #2: Bayou St. John, NOLA

This is a neighborhood in New Orleans that’s bounded by the waterway of the same name, where Marie Laveau used to conduct Voodoo rituals. The banks are one of her possible resting places–her body is commonly said to be in plot 347 in St. Louis No. 1, but although some of her descendants are known to be buried in it, there’s no real proof that she is.
