Dia de los Muertos, Mexico City Pt. 3

Dia de los Muertos has had a profound impact on me and my perspective of death. After losing my father last year, I was drawn to visit Mexico City and experience this holiday in its origins. Coming from New Mexico we have a strong latin culture and celebrate this holiday in New Mexico but nothing like they do in Mexico.

San Andres, just outside of Mexico City, was an amazing location to experience Dia de los Muertos and I found myself walking around the cemetery there for a couple hours just observing the rituals of cleaning the graves, filling in the names on the stones, planting marigolds and flowers and everyone was doing this together. The young and old came together to honor their loved ones.

To say this experience was therapeutic is an understatement and I am beyond excited to be in Mexico to witness and partake in this holiday again.

What is Dia de los Muertos? I have more descriptions here.
