We’re planning a trip to Guadalajara and Mexico City. Part familia, part cultural immersion. Impetus for the trip: Day of the Dead.
Day of the Dead is a unique combination of Catholic and indigenous Mexican religion… it’s really beautiful. Read more about it here.
Part of the trip will be to Guadalajara . Cultural mecca of Mexico, we’ve been before, and will probably do and see things we’ve seen, but it’s a beautiful city. For sure we’ll see Orozco's murals: Orozco was such a powerful artist. His work blows me away, with its huge size, and public access. I love its political messages, and that he was an artist of the people. Seeing his work in person is unlike any photos.
As for a sidetrip, there’s no way we can’t go to Tequila (uh, music warning for that gem of a link).
We’re also going to Mexico City (more on that part in a future post), but I for sure want to see Frida’s famous blue house.
Thank you frequent flyer mileage!
