Cementerios


We visited a couple of cemeteries (cementerios) today, but it is difficult to take pictures without violating the sanctity of the moment these families are sharing with their dead family members and friends. The approach to these cemeteries are swarming with vendors selling various offerings (ofrenda) - primarily flowers. These cemeteries were filled with families busily washing down and polishing the stones, planting, decorating and laying down offerings and just communing with the dead.
