Roman candy, New Orleans (part I)
Since I don't live uptown of Canal Street anymore, I don't travel St. Charles Avenue as much as I used to. I was there the other day though. What to my wondering eyes did appear? A mule-drawn cart selling hand-rolled taffy.
The mule was drowsy, indifferent to the traffic speeding by much faster than his four legs could carry him and the cart behind. If I had to bet money on a race between the cart and the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, I'd put my cash on the mule.
