Chalk in New Orleans

Roberto in New Orleans, like just about every gondolier I've ever met, is fun, interesting, creative and loves what he does. That creativity has brought about a neat tradition there in City Park, which you can see in this video clip:
"Join the Under the Bridge Club with NOLA Gondola"

I've often said that at the heart of any successful gondola operation, you'll find a true fanatic.
Roberto refers to it as more than a job; he says it's a "calling".
I love that, and I can certainly identify.
But my favorite quote from this video is this gem:
"This is what I was put on this big rock to do"

To read more about this chalk tradition, check out my post from April of this year "The Under the Bridge Club".
