Day of the Dead: Mixquic

The last day of the Day of the Dead celebration was definitely the most interesting as well as the most intense. This is due to the fact that the second Day of the Dead is generally deemed to be the more important of the two, and also because we went to a southern Barrio of Mexico City called Mixquic, which is known for its Day of the Dead celebrations.

The graveyard procession you may know about actually happened the day before (at midnight I believe) so unfortunately my friends and I missed that, but we spent the day exploring the Mixquic market before seeing the graveyard, which was beautifully decorated with flowers as you can see.
