The article presents a description of the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, which is said to be haunted. Guides conjure up local legends of gruesome ghouls and weave the fascinating history of the city into the plot. In the 18th century, when the inhabitants tried to inter their loved ones beneath the ground, the high water table meant they simple rose back up again. So the graves are built above ground, forming real cities of the dead.
