This year ,as the last ,the wonderful displays that they used to do in the village did not happen. So sad really as everywhere else there seemed to be the celebration… but of course it always comes down to politics. Nevertheless I set up a small altar in the display area as you enter into The Pickled Onion
One of the ladies in the village is well prepared to supply the flowers for the people in the village that do prepare their alters in their homes . I asked Maria if I could go to her garden and take photos of course she kindly said yes and escorted me to her home and her back garden which was a sight worth seeing
Below you will see more of her garden
This year … again to my trusty manager I was able to celebrate a lovely night in one of Meridas most beautiful homes….. Guests were made up mostly of expats to which most I did not know. and the place was heaving with people The food was great and wine free flowing … but below are photos showing our preparations for the event .
And some friends
Also a few photos of house .
