Mardi Gras, Cajun style
I told you Cajun Mardi Gras celebrations were completely different to all the other kinds, didn't I.
The crowd was alive with costumes and energy and amazing colour and dancing and it was a truly memorable cultural experience until Berry had an overtired little fight with Kickbaby, and ended up throwing her tiny pink shoes near a group of unsuspecting picnickers in a fury.
And that, of course, spelled the end of mardi gras and the beginning of a hefty time-out.
I really hope we'll be more civilised next year. Personally, I wouldn't invite us back – but maybe the Cajuns are different.
