Day of the Dead Ajijic Plaza 2018

Every town in Mexico celebrates the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) in their local plazas.  Ajijic had one of the largest celebrations I have seen since moving here twelve years ago. This year they had altars up and Catrinas. Many more people were celebrating the holiday there than in previous years. It all happened on Friday late afternoon and night, November 2nd. Above is a photo of one of...

Halloween and Day of the Dead in Ajijic

The Day of the Dead is a big Holiday in Mexico. Some people say that Mexicans don't celebrate Halloween. Tell that to the little girl in the photo below. She was all ready to go trick or treating in the evening. Just like in the United States, parents take their children out trick or treating to the expensive neighborhoods.

9th Annual Ajijic Northern Lights Music Festival

I have lived in this area over three years. During that time I had heard many things about the Northern Lights Music Festival but I never went. I don’t like to go out alone at night and the tickets cost more than I was willing to pay. What a mistake. My friend offered me her ticket to the gala opening on February 19th. I went with another friend and we had a ride there and back. It was a real eye opener...
