The town is hoppin'. THAT is an understatement. Even the taxi drivers are grumbling because it is so hard for them to get around.

I've spread them around the house but have not completed my altar as yet so you'll have to wait for the photos of that.
It has been so hectic that I'm behind on a zillion things.
Then yesterday was Halloween. When I first moved here it was a non-holiday. Not celebrated down here at all. Now the kids go into the jardin to receive candy from the gringoes who show up with bags of it to
No way to get around in a car so I jumped in a taxi and headed to the jardin to see Mati and Sebastian.
Today locals will be at the cemeteries to complete the cleaning of the gravesites. Putting flowers on them and getting ready to return tomorrow for Day of the Dead. Today honors the children and those who have died this year. Tomorrow is for the others.
There is a huge catrina parade tonight from the Rosewood Hotel to the jardin for more fun and frivolity. I've never seen it but I hear it has grown a lot in the last four or five years since it was started.
My intention is to go to the cemeteries today and tomorrow to photograph and to see all the altars set up in the jardin to honor those who have crossed over.
Whew, its a spiritual and happy time in Mexico! Wish you were here.
