The colours of Day of the Dead are orange and purple, the flowers, marigolds and violetas. As I entered Fabrica tonight the trio was playing music from the nightclub scene in Frida. I felt the magic of this country.
|Walking in to the huge foyer, I was greeted with a massive sugar skull, almost as tall as me.|
|The alter, which filled half the foyer is made with fresh flowers.|
|The office worker.|
|Huge pots with flowers floating in water.|
|Every gallery had an alter.|
|The trio in the foyer playing wonderful Mexican music.|
|These are the molds paper mache dolls were made from. These dolls are still produced, however this particular mold is antique.|
|It would be fun to go in costume.|
|Ah, more mellow music from Old Mexico. I could listen forever.|
We ended the evening at Don Felix, by now my favorite restaurant in town.
There's a gentle rain falling tonight and the evenings are becoming cooler. Time to get out the shawls and sweaters. Thanks for stopping in. Take care. xoxo Donna
