This was my first trip back to Mexico City since 1979. Traveling with the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) gave us access to photographers and their studios, as well as galleries. The streets were colorful and cuisine ranged from molecular gastronomy to street.
Our time in San Migeul de Allende was memorable. A convergence of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. Nights at the town square were festive, respectful and very fun.
We also spent time in one of the main town graveyards. Families brought flowers, music, food, mescal, rice, fighting cocks for the dead and hired mariachi bands to play at graveside. There were few tears but it was very heartfelt. – steve
