        ... botched mummification attempts. Unlike the ancient Egyptian version these mummies were less than 150 years old and nowhere near as professional looking. At some point a tax was introduced that relatives had to pay to keep their relatives interred and those whose relatives couldn't pay were dug up and put on display. This ended in 1958 so the mummies are from 1865 - 1958, pretty recent! The whole place was set up like a house of horror ride at a theme ...

        ... views of the city below. Very relaxing, and we were very happy to be there.

        We rescued an abused and neglected mango from the depths of our Styrofoam cooler, and paired it with the fruit of the prickly pear cactus. A deep magenta, this fruit proved to be more appealing to the eye than to the palate. Vaguely fragant, with a texturemof tha of an overripe pear, though not nearly as sweet, it has many seeds ...

        Due to uncontrollable circumstances (free Lila Downs concert in Zacatecas), we cancelled our stay in Guanajuato in order to go straight to San Miguel de Allende. But that didn't mean we couldn't stop in for a bit. After all, it was on the way there...more or less. Guanajuato is known as a "Magical Village," and was the home of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Though his murals are really impressive, I'm not really a fan of Diego, but Frida is one ...

        ... houses over 100 mummies exhumed from the Guanajuato cemetery, right next door. These mummified bodies were exhumed as a result of a law requiring residents to pay a tax for perpetual burial in the late nineteenth century. When the tax was unpaid by survivors, the body was exhumed. (Most of the mummies are from above ground cement crypts. They believe that the dry hot climate preserved the bodies.) The burial tax law was outlawed in 1958.

        ... it's just a silly think they do here. Once I got home I ate a little, took a shower, and almost went straight to bed. However, my friend Maria Elena showed up so we chatted for a bit and then I politely kicked her out. I was in bed by 10. :)

        Saturday I worked all day until about 6:30 when Ricardo, Maria Elena, Dave (Maria Elena's house mate and another student from our program), and I went to a Folkloric ...
