Day of the Dead



Since going to those magical towns where the Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is celebrated real big is next to impossible (basically everybody, local and foreign, tries to go), we had to do with staying in town. Which was nice, because there were plenty of offerings and altars everywhere (like the one you see above – a simple street offering), and there was an alebrije (some fantastical creatures that have become really popular) exhibition right on Paseo de la Reforma, which made for a very nice stroll.
