{dia de los muertos!}

2 Nov

i walked the “day of the dead” parade in my new town and got some fun fotos of some pretty stellar costumes and such.

i didn’t know much about dia de los muertos until just last week.  and now that i do – i gotta say – i’m kind of hooked 😀  i really want to prepare better and dress up next year.  it just looked so fun!

and i’m for celebrating diversity and culture! i miss those two things about NYC the most.  i just appreciate the differences we have, and i love learning about new cultures, or even existing cultures, but really getting immersed in the celebration! everyone here is so welcoming and wonderful.  i met some amazing people and i just had a great time!

{preface : this one is foto-heavy!}
