    Google now has a street view of paths inside the botanical gardens next to storyland. They are basically the same place and there's alot to see.
    I note this because I didn't see these paths when I was on Google maps earlier this year.

    The mask, stick, hand, and sleeved arm reaching up from the bottom of the image have settled in my mind in a very particular way. There are many other details to sort out from the image and verse, but I'm just addressing this one set of visuals.

    Mask = Statue in a Park = Louis Armstrong Statue in Louis Armstrong Park.

    Stick/Hand = Symbolic of a Street name = Joan of Arc's statue holds her flag up high like that, she was canonized in 1920 in St. Peter's Basilica (Sarmiento's quote likens the Charles Hotel to St. Peter's) = St. Peter street.

    Sleeve = Street Name = the artistic style of Toulouse = Toulouse street.

    Arm descends = Casque to be found near the next street following the previous steps: Mask, Stick/Hand, Sleeve = St. Louis Street.

    I think the V being pointed out by the 12-hands means "go straight to where the V points". The V points directly to a spot on the ground a few feet to the left of the plaque.



    The yellow line is a spot exactly fifteen measures distant in terms of the stairs just to the left. Someone could verify this with respect to either the tread or rise using a tape measure.

    Many years later I know...but I've always thought it was Lafayette Park in New Orleans because of Verse 2. "Only three stand watch" with the 3 statues in a row of Henry Clay, John McDonogh and Benjamin Franklin. "Here is a sovereign people Who build palaces to shelter their heads for a night" which indicates the St. Charles hotel...but it's St. Charles Street that runs along side of the park. And the "Fays delight" La"fay"ette Park or the Lafayette Street that dead ends into the park. The park was damaged so badly during Katrina. I don't know how the trees are. If there are rows of 21 or 15 as indicated in the Verse. I'd be too scared to dig in the city anyway, but I love Louisiana hunts. Home hunts are the best . Snowy

    Hi Snowy, I like some of the merits of Lafayette Park. I would love to take a look around that park in person some day, but for now I'm very enthusiastic about the Gardens of the Americas' three statues, a President of Venezuela, a President of Mexico, and a President of the Federal Republic of Central America. This reconciles very well with the quote by Sarmiento, "Here is the sovereign people who build palaces to shelter their heads for a night!", since he was a President of Argentina.

    I have a tiny little secret about the location that I haven't brought much attention to. I was hoping someone would figure out why sleeping is so vital to this puzzle. Gnomes would understand...
