I’m on an early flight tomorrow morning headed to Mexico for the next 10 days and just in time for the Day of the Dead festival.
After landing in Mexico City and connecting with friends we will hop on a bus to Patzcuaro, about a five and a half hour journey. Located in the state of Michoacan I’m told on good authority that Patzcuaro is a remarkable place to witness Day of the Dead celebrations. Next we’ll be heading to Uruapan which features a national park and volcano. The last few days will be spent relaxing on a beach on the Pacific Coast before heading back to Mexico City.
I’ll be interested to see coverage of the elections next Tuesday and a different perspective from our neighbor Mexico. Naturally, I have posts lined up while I’m away.
