No I am not going to post pictures of sugar Day of the Dead candy skulls, everyone else has..
No pictures of Day of the Dead Altars, did that two years ago, you will see tons of them elsewhere.
Not going to go to the cemeteries and trample on top of family graves, (seems too sacrilegious).
Might drive by a cemetery or two to see the decorations.
No photos of traffic backups all over Patzcuaro, no pictures of tour buses lined up all parked in a row.
That would prove that commercialism prospers in Mexico.
Instead my picture is of Count Floyd, Howling at the almost full moon.
You do know Count Floyd? Don't You?
He is the man who makes things scary, real scary and tonight is when all children must have the wits scared out of them....
At least one night a year which will traumatize them for the rest of their lives. Or would you rather have this day known for starting their life of tooth decay? Or early diabetes from too many candies and Day of the Dead Pan Dulces.
Hopefully tourists will come and bring needed shekels to town. The weather today should be in the low 80's, not a drop of rain, no thunder, maybe a few clouds......we need a few clouds to move between the full moon which will be full in the next few nights.
Need that so Count Floyd can look up at the moon and Howl.....
