Day of the Dead in Photos, 2017

It’s the middle of the first week of November, which means that the Day of the Dead has come and gone. The holiday is one of the most interesting and colorful in Mexico, taking place in big processions on the street, in people’s homes, and in cemeteries across the country. Please read a more detailed description here.

Not having too much time to write, I uploaded a bunch of photos to this blog’s Facebook page. Please click here to take a look.

Or, look to the right to find the little Facebook box. Besides the photos for Day of the Dead, I have other collections from my travels in Mexico. Click “like,” and when I post links to articles about Mexico or more photos, they will appear in your feed.

And while you’re looking to the right of this page, check out the blog stats. As I write this, I’m a couple thousand short of one million hits. One million hits! I remember when I passed ten thousand a few years ago, and how I couldn’t believe it was that many.

So, thank you very much for visiting my blog. I’ll be writing longer articles soon, but for now please enjoy a few of my photos from the Day of the Dead:

10 Tips for Adjusting to Life in Mexico

I am honored and grateful that Transitions Abroad chose my article 10 Tips for Adjusting to Life in Mexico as the winner of its 2017 Expatriate and Work Abroad writing contest.

Transitions Abroad is my favorite resource for fascinating and well-written articles from a variety of perspectives about living and traveling abroad. Every time I visit the website, I learn something new and inspiring about the experiences of other expats from all over the world.

This is the second year I have won this contest—thanks Transitions Abroad! The article I wrote last year, which was recently updated, focused on the practicalities of living in Mexico, like working, banking, and health insurance.

The new article, 10 Tips for Adjusting to Life in Mexico, is more about understanding and adapting to Mexican culture, based on what I’ve learned during seven years living here. Even if you don’t plan on moving to Mexico, but are simply curious, I hope you find something to enjoy about the article.

As always, thank you for reading, sharing and commenting.
