We spent the first day of Day of the Dead in Coyocan, the neighborhood Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived in. We actually spent the morning in the museum that Frida Kahlo's house now is, though none of these photos are from there. I took only my film camera and unfortunately for me it was rather cloudy and getting photos in that low light was difficult. Not only that, but I forgot my telephoto lens, which made candids even more difficult. Regardless, I hope you can see a little of what Dia De Los Muertos looks like in this neighborhood of Mexico City. To hear it, check out my Instagram here or here. Beautiful and a little creepy, huh?
Here I am inside Frida Kahlo's house. I was filled with glee!
Next I'll cover day two of Dia De Los Muertos, which we spent in Mixquic, a southern barrio in Mexico City, which happens to be where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera liked to spend their Day of the Dead Holiday.
