Are you celebrating? Leaving out some water to quench the thirst of loved ones who have passed and are making their way back from the dead to celebrate Dia de los Muertos?
We have been enjoying some lovely Pan de Muerte sent to us from a mexican bakery in California via our connection in Cape Verde. MMmmmmm. Has anyone seen this for sale in the Portland area?
In case you missed last years podcast on Day of the Dead, submitted by yours truly and the lovely AdRi, here is a link for you to that. Oh podcasts. We haven't done one in such a long time. With Nablopomo here, I foresee that possibility. Speaking of, thank you for the requests this month! I'll definitely be posting more about North Portland and if I get up the gumption, answer some of those pesky personal questions put out there, too. Maybe.
This lovely post by another Oregon blogger tells about the history of Day of the Dead. And with that, I leave you with another favorite photo of the altars in Tlaquepaque we visited in Mexico on our last trip down south....
