Experience Day of the Dead at the night in Mixquic

San Andres, Mixquic, Milpa Alta, Mexico

 

Day of the Dead at Night

After you visit San Pedtro Atocpan  and San Antonio Tecomitl on the tour with Pata de Perro DF on 2nd November.

 

You will tour the cemetery of the third town at night on the Day of the Dead.

It's San Andres Mixquic,

 

The Church

At the church, Parroquia de San Andrés Apóstol, you can walk around the cemetery.

The graves are decorated, with offerings like flowers. And, candles are lit.

 

Expect to find it very crowded.

 

The doors of the church are open. You can look in. And, you'll see the gold within and on the roof entrance.

 

You can walk further around to where there used to be a monastery.

There, you will find relics from the past and human bones used in the Day of the Dead celebrations.

 

In the Town

Next, you will walk into the town. And, you can eat at restaurants and shop at stalls along the road.

 

In the middle, you'll find a tall female skeleton, La Catrina, and a tall male skeleton.

They are lit up at night, so they are easy to find.

 

Then, you can have a Mexican meal at a small restaurant.

 

In Mexico, you'll have to try the thick mango juice, and the corn quesadillas.

And, I thought, the Cactus Juice was similar in taste to orange juice.

Where to experience Halloween

Halloween Flashback. Where to spend Halloween.   Each year, Halloween  widens its reach here, in Australia, compared to the past.   I will always remember the Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood and Orlando. We ventured out and did a night at both in 2014....
