Day of the Dead. Part two.

Previously on Equinoxio: the Captain and crew are in therapy after the shock of watching the world’s worst haircut after Boris “Judas” Johnson win the election of the modern Empire. In a parallel universe, Mexico celebrated the Day of the Dead. Here is the remainder of a stroll among the Dead in Tlalpan, a borough of Mexico city.

Enough for today. Enjoy a great week-end, and the rest of November and December. The new administration will not come into office until January. Praise the Lord for small favours.

    • Agreed. The small favour is that we have until January to breathe. (And maybe stock food in case of a nuclear fall-out). But this guy is such a moron, he is likely to insult the chinese president or Putin if he fells like it. That is the major risk.

  1. Have you also visited cemeteries? Normally a lot of Mexicans are to be met there during this period for feasts with their ancestors. At least they have a real and visible relationship to death which got quite lost in our Gringo-Civilization.
