Ah, the Big Easy, famous for Mardi Gras, [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo]], and jazz music, despite not inventing any of these. Commonly associated with the Cajun culture, despite being a few hours away from any of it. Also, hurricanes. The French have a consulate there. Another claim to fame is the food; you can find almost any kind of seafood (except lobster) here. The squeamish can rest easy about how well-cooked their food is.

The parish would be pronounced "Or-LEANS".[[/note]]. Once you've lived here a couple years, your speech will naturally slur it down, but don't force it.
