Morning Thoughts--Day of the Dead
The Day of the Dead celebrations are coming up. This is my favorite holiday. The large Katrina Dolls are being put up along the Chapala Malecon this weekend. I don't know about in Ajijic. I must buy a Guadalajara Reporter this morning so I can find out what all is going on.
Most likely there will be the Zombie Dance. That is always fun to watch. And of course the alters in Chapala. I see marigolds everywhere now. A sure sign that the Day of the Dead is coming soon. If you have never experienced Mexico during this time of the year, you have no idea of what you are missing. Come and join us if you can.
More people are already in town. The Wednesday market was very crowded last week. The high season is starting. Rentals will be scarce and expensive. The restaurants will be full again. People will be flooding into the Lake Chapala Society. New friends and lots of fun. I like both the high and the low seasons. Each has a charm.
