Mr. Okra in My New Orleans Neighborhood

Mr. Okra is a veritable celebrity in these parts. Subject of an award-winning film and a much-loved and much celebrated part of our quirky New Orleans culture Mr. Okra comes down my street several times a week doing what he does best: driving slowly, decorating the neighborhood with his colorful painted truck and singing about all the fruits and veggies he has for sale.

This video give you a glimpse of what I see and hear every day he comes by. Hooray for Mr. Okra. Would there were more like him.
