El Dia de los Muertos

We went to a live performance of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” last night (wonderful performance), then went to the Frontier Restaurant to eat and visit afterward, so we didn’t get home until almost midnight. Laurie reminded me that we set the clocks back an hour, so I set all our analog clocks to 11:20 thinking we were almost ready for bed. However, by the time I remember I needed to go outside and turn off the water to the drip system, did a kitty count, messed around on the computer some more, and finally herded the cats to the bedroom it was 12:20 again — I ended up staying up past midnight twice last night.

We went to the Marigold Parade and Festival as part of El Dia de los Muertos after choir practice this afternoon. The Marigold Parade was great fun and people from the various cultures in the Albuquerque area participated and showed off their creativity.

  1. Sorry I missed you. We saw a lot of the same things and people, but they look a little different. 🙂
    When did you get there, and where did you park? Next year I’m going 2 hours early!!!

    • We got there at 3:00 pm, and found a place to park on a street that dead ended into the irrigation ditch that runs behind the community center, so we ended up parking really close. When we were following the end of the parade to the community center, we were talking to our neighbors about putting a float together using their classic pickup truck next year.

      • That would be fun!! I was parked down at Tapia, so I did not even make it to the Community Center. However, I did get a better idea of how I can do it next year so my mom can go, not have to walk far, and can sit mainly in the shade.
        It was something I was really sorry my mom missed this year.
