Silence doesn’t mean a story isn’t being told. Walk. Observe. Read. Even listen.
Cemeteries are more than a place to bury the dead. They are the link to a town’s past.
The cemetery in Todos Santos is a colorful display of tributes to those who have passed. While some might say it is a bit dilapidated, others will find the love.
Mexican cemeteries aren’t like most in the United States. The tributes are more grand – and that is not necessarily a sign of wealth. They are colorful, ornate in some cases. Some are like mini homes for these souls.
As Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) approaches on Nov. 1, families will bring mementos, tokens, candles, even food for those have died.
Visiting a Mexican cemetery is worth doing no matter the time of year.
