Northeast Girl Goes Southwest

Arriving in San Diego 
the week leading up to Day of the Dead 
had never crossed my mind. 
But that is what I did - inadvertently. 
Being  from the Northeast 
I had no idea how BIG 
Day of the Dead is in Southwest Cali.  
It's Big. 

Balboa Park, San Diego, California 

Now that the celebrations are over, 
it is time to head back east to the living.

Here's some Mexican music to inspire you: 

The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

So full of life - or is that an oxymoron?

I wasn't anticipating people dressed so colorfully for the Day of the Dead.
