Mexico City was a breathtaking experience!

I chose Mexico City, because I wanted to experience the Day of the Dead celebrations. So I took 10 days for experiencing this festival as well as keeping some of the days for sightseeing.

“Day of the Dead,” or Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico. The Day of the Dead starts from the 26th of October and ends by November 3rd.  This involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awake and celebrate with them.

The streets were filled with all kinds of people wearing masks, or dressing up as superheros as well as Zombies and other scary creatures. It was so much fun, that the visuals and the varieties of Offerendas all over the city, especially the Zoocalo area.

Shopping was amazing at the Historico district in the city and to see people dressed up with little “Ninos” asking for candies was very cute. The parents and the children dressed up and took part in the long walks, parading their outfits. All this was an amazing experience and every minute was a fun visuals. I was tempted to paint my face just like the movie Coco, but then it was too much. But every adult was doing it, so it was something very normal. Anyways, here are some cool photos.
