Black and Gold

I'm not a football fan. Never have been and probably never will be.
But I am a huge fan of New Orleans. And the Saints have done them proud!





Last but not least, a photo of a serious fan...

Just another naturally N'Awlins moment. Pin It

They've picked up some very flashy colours! All the better for pictures, of course (and carnival)

Fun fun fun in N.O. go Saints. I am not a football fan either but I am happy they won. Great photos. Especially, the drag queen in a football uniform.

New Orleans is never subtle!

You could hear the entire city screaming with joy. People were dancing in the streets and hugging each other. It was amazing!

Thanks for letting me know and thank you for taking Barrie some soup.
It is a very special event for New Orleans. Ron and Michael say hello! Bisous

Hi Im also in the process of obtaining french citizenship while living in France for over 14 years, have received the official ministry dossier letter last year too, and stumbled onto your blog.

Any news recently or are you waiting out the 12 month time period patiently? Have you heard of anyone getting their citizenship in less time than 12 months?

It was an AMAZING time to be in New Orleans. Such celebration! The city needs some positive energy.

My citizenship came through in about 18 months, but there were delays for reasons that were out of my control.
I am going to pick up the final dossier this week.
Never heard of anyone getting it in less than 12 months.
Good luck! :)
