The day of the dead – Oaxaca, Mexico

“Dias de los muertos” I could write an entire article about this incredible event! Travelling is also seeing cultural event you can’t see at home. Oaxaca, one of the best cities of Mexico to celebrate this event. I was not disappointed. I left this place with countless memories. 

“People go to cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars containing the favorite foods and beverages, as well as photos and memorabilia, of the departed. The intent is to encourage visits by the souls, so the souls will hear the prayers and the comments of the living directed to them. Celebrations can take a humorous tone, as celebrants remember funny events and anecdotes about the departed.” – Wikipedia
