A trip to the Panteon

Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) observance at the Panteon was last Sunday and it was decided there would be too many people on a non-working day. We went Monday on the way to school so the kids could visit and Euriel left a small shrine he made. Lorena makes her own wreaths (oferta) rather than buy the expensive ready made. I've done this a number of times but it's always interesting.  Lots of dedication and money some people have put into the grave sites .... while others extremely basic and seemingly forgotten.

There was lots of evidence of a party the night before and two groups were still at it. Passing time with old friends or family!!

Interesting new roof

Nice clean ones

Size of a house for husband and wife

How basic can you get
No visitors this year


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
