Did New Orleans exploit the Dalai Lama?

New Orleans did win the lottery by scoring a visit from one of the most influential people in the world! We were lucky enough to have the Dalai Lama in town for a few days.

A picture on the city’s tourism Facebook page shows the Dalai Lama with city leaders wearing a New Orleans Pelicans hat, and he’s holding a “Follow your NOLA” shirt.

While many people thought it was a cool way to welcome the leader, others say the city was using his holiness as a billboard to promote the city’s new campaign.
