Dia De Los Muertos
Every year I always end up begging a mexican to take me to Mexico for Dia De Los Muertos. And they always say they will, and fill my head with these amazing stories and the celebrations. But as usual, and much to my frustration, it never happens. And its not as authentic to just go to East L.A. I want the real deal. I want to go to the festivals, cemeteries,celebrate with the people, see it all, photograph it all (hopefully I will have my fisheye camera, Ive been drooling over for sometime) its not the same here. I want culture, and not the kind you get from being 3rd generation Indio.
