Dia de los muertos~Patzcaro MX

I love the Mexican holiday dia de los muertos. For years I'e been celebrating it in S.F. where we paint our faces like catrinas, walk a processional, and visit alters with ofrendas

It was really important to me on this trip to see dia de los muertos in a traditional setting, and I had heard that Patzcuaro is the place to be. Seeing that it is the place to be things get booked, and prices go up 400%, and I was afraid that I wouldn't make it or have a place to stay and my dreams would be crushed. But they weren't.
After meeting a guy in Ensenada that used www.couchsurfing.com while he traveled all over Europe I felt like I should check it out, and I'm glad I did. I meet this adorable artisan couple that sell their jewelry online , their business is called Rojo Pitaya.

Not only were they amazing, and sweet, but they lived in an adobe house in the country side with a cute puppy named Sito.

  1. I've been a floral designer for 16 years, and while the decor is fabulous, I can't help but roll my eyes at all the work involved! This is the kind of event that would give me nightmares about my job.

  2. hahaah! Love it Susan, go figure this is all a labor of love!
