Paseo de las Ánimas

As part of the Día de Muertos events,  Friday was the Paseo de las Animas (Passage of the Souls) procession.  (

George and I walked up to the cemetery to see the beginning of the Maya Ceremony X’Men, and the
procession. It was nice to experience a little bit of this grand event, though we did not walk the procession to San Juan plaza. Below are a few photos of our views. I love the painted faces in the skull-like designs.

The cemetery is a beautiful place at night with the old mausoleums and angel sculptures, with its reminder of that fine line, between life and death.
