Friday was a day off of work and school in Mexico for the celebration of Día de los Muertos. It is my favorite holiday as the whole city really does celebrate their loved ones who have passed.
Ofrendas are displayed with flower petals, ground seeds, and the favorite foods & drinks of those who are gone. At the start of November, the air is crisp and nothing seems cozier than a steamy cup of cafe de olla, possibly followed by a fresh churro.
Dexter, Dave and I went to Coyoacán (an older, very quaint neighborhood in Mexico City) for the morning on Friday to check out all the festivities.
