The link below is to an article in today's New York Times about the Day of the Dead celebration in Morelia and Lake Patzcuaro. The "Cristina" quoted several times in the article is the same Cristina that posts here on the International Board and on the California Board. It's a good article and the author did capture the essence of the celebration very well. It's definitely worth the read. You will have to register with the NYT to read the article, but it free and the don't spam you afterwards.
