In Pictures: Día de los Muertos

This weekend, México celebrated Día de los Muertos, a festival in which people offer food, flowers, and ornamental alters for the departed.  This holiday is steeped with stories and tradition — on Saturday evening, I met a few Fulbrighters downtown to hear a few legends and then take in the sights.  Decorated in honor of the holiday with ofrendas from many local delegaciones and companies, the zócalo was an energetic hub of music, dancing, crowds, and color.  Though, perhaps this story is better told in pictures…..
