Dead of the Dead is a 4 day celebration in Mexico to remember loved ones who have died. In Jardin Borda, a lovely park in the center of Cuernavaca, there are many Catrinas made by local artisans. In Ocotepec families who have lost someone in the past year create elaborate ofrendas and invite people to their homes for food and drink. As I walked from house to house accepting food and lighting candles for the dead I was reminded of Ash Wednesday. Check out the pictures!

In peace,
