New Orleans Marie Laveau Tomb

This is a great small business that has just about everything you could desire in the voodoo/new age realm. While the majority of things are mass produced/made in China, the majority seem to be one-of-a-kind. That night's clerk was incredibly irritated and unpleasant. When we requested for an item that was behind the counter, he made a puffing sound. I'd been in New Orleans for two days at this time and had been using the same debit card throughout. He requested to see my identification for the debit card, which I did not have—so he motioned back to me holding my card and said, âwell, I'm afraid I can't assist youâ. My sale was around $30.00. Now, keep in mind that this was the first of perhaps six locations that requested my identification. Perhaps that is a shop policy, but there is no need to be impolite. He really acted as though he despised his work, which took away from the shop's overall enjoyment.

When I visited the cemetery for the first time, it was available to the public for free, but owing to regular damage, it is now only accessible through guided, licensed tours (unless you are family of course).

Without a clear idea of what I was searching for, it took a little time until I discovered the tomb that commemorates Marie Laveau's ultimate resting place. The tomb had a peculiar aura about it, as if it were being drawn in by some type of magnetic force.

A year and a day...that is the length of time required, according to local legend, before a corpse placed in one of New Orleans' above-ground tombs decomposes, leaving just bones left. At that time, the tomb may be opened, which works as an oven in the subtropical heat, exposing the corpse to a process akin to gradual cremation.
