Dia de los Muertos- La Paz 2015

We are back in Mexico, and this year we timed it to celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which seems to be a huge trend in the US.

The Mexican culture is always something that intrigues me.  I love that they embrace and celebrate the dead and teach this from an early age.  The Katrinas (little girls dressed up as walking skeletons with elaborate dresses, hats and makeup) are always so fun to see.

This year, we were joined by our friends Nancy and Rob from Shindig and Kathryn and Robin from Agave Azul.  I was inspired to dress up this year.

It was a fun process, and everyone joined in the fun!

Of course the real fun was going to the festival with the REAL Katrinas
