the parade was great... baby LOVED the dancing skeletons... it has made me all the more determined to get to Mexico to see this thing for real. Looks like this one is going to be an annual event now.

It was so busy there was no way we could stop to read much of the info/listen to the talks... and the one element I really felt was missing was the fact that these were celebrations to remember dead loved ones... it was all very festivally and fun, but not much about the shrines... the shrine that they had just felt like a display.

The mexican prints on the top floor were very cool indeed... well worth going for (thanks for the tip SH), I got a beautiful book of mexican prints as a belated birthday present. I only stopped at one other floor but was drooling over the statues. Thoroughly loved the museum and want to go back to see more... their displays were stunning, really well put together, very culturally diverse... and from an arty point of view, totally inspiring.

Bumped into scarlet hell on the way out... gorgeous as well as talented! Didn't expect to see her as the place really was packed, but I'm glad I got to say hi
