Day of the Dead antics

Photo

We were out over the weekend and saw this motorcyclist at an intersection. You can't see it well but he was wearing a skeleton mask under his huge horned helmet. It's a fun time of the year, like Halloween on steroids, here in Mexico with the Day of the Dead coming up later in the week. If you're curious about Day of the Dead celebration, this site will tell you all you need to know. Believe it or not, this will be the first time I'm actually in Mexico for Day of the Dead celebrations. Every other year since 2010, I've been called away.
