For a true New Orleans virtual experience, drink a couple of Hurricanes before viewing this 360° panoramic photograph of the French Quarter during Mardi Gras and keep your finger on your mouse to rotate the image. You'll get that same crazy Carnival feeling while avoiding the indignity of getting arrested, throwing up on a stranger, or passing out on the street. (For added olfactory realness, try spilling some beer and/or urinating in the corner of your room.) It's the next best thing to being here!
