Last posting from Mexico

Hola –we are on our way home. We’ve had such a fun, entertaining and informative trip to San Miguel de Allende. If you’ve ever considered visiting, we highly recommend it. This city is beautiful with great views of the surrounding mountains and the many churches, fun hilly walks, lots to do, excellent restaurants and very nice people. We have developed 4 more stories: the Cemeteries of San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato and 2 sidebars: Intoxicated with Death: The Calaveras of Mexico and The Legend of the Chupacabra. We hope you enjoy. Hasta luego.

Intriguing Mexican burials and New Photos in Lagniappe

We’re still enjoying the mountains of Mexico and have visited some incredible sites near San Miguel de Allende that we hope you find as fascinating as we have. Two new Historic World Cemeteries: The Most Unusual Burials in the Western Hemisphere and Mexico’s Psychedelic Sistine Chapel — the Sanctuary of Atotonilco. Plus we took a trip to Guanajuato to visit the Museo de las Momias. There are extra photos in the Gravesites Gallery too.

Additionally, we’ve added lots of new photos to Marks’ short story entitled A Deadly Encounter in a Faraway Land. Check out the Gallery associated with this story also.


One Houston cemetery, two Texas cemeteries and a Sidebar

Hola from Mexico — we are inspired by the cool mountain air of San Miguel de Allende to share with you two of our favorite cemeteries of far West Texas: Terlingua & Lajitas.  What a beautiful part of the state and what neat cemeteries. We’ve also posted Glendale Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Harris County with views over the ship channel to the South Loop 610. This week’s Sidebar: The Hungry Ghost touches on an aspect of Buddhism that may not be known to you. Enjoy!
