As the agents walked toward downtown, Napoleon complained about the outfit he had chosen to escape in.  “This thing is heavy.”  The headdress was decorated with beads, feathers, and sequins.  

“If your ego was not so big, you would not have taken the biggest headdress,” Illya answered as he adjusted his own small headpiece.

“Why would anyone want to wear this thing around?  My head is hurting.”

Walking along they noticed others with beautiful Indian dress.  “The guide book says that this is the first year the Super Sunday festival and parade featuring roughly 40 Mardi Gras Indian tribes throughout the city went through the city are officially participating.
Both the Downtown and Uptown tribes come together.  Indian suits are composed of three main pieces: a crown, a dickie, and an apron.”

Napoleon was tired and frustrated. “Enough history.  Let’s just find someplace to take these off, so they don’t get destroyed.  Also, we need to check in with Wavery.  He’s not going to be happy.” 

“Good thing you’re the senior agent, by two years,”  Illya smirked.

“Funny Russian, aren’t you?  Come on.  The hotel is over there.  After we rest, we’ll have to look for Crocker again.”

The place was quiet and as Illya had surmised, a good many people were sleeping off the previous night’s festivities.

Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin had been given a couple of days to themselves before their return to HQ, so had decided to enjoy as much of Mardi Gras as they could. As it was the so called ‘Super Sunday’ they had chosen to go and see the amazingly spectacular costumes of the many Mardi Gras Indian tribes. Illya had been somewhat surprised to learn that the Indians were actually black Americans, and not Native American.
