Mexico City: The Day of the Dead

For anyone who saw 007 Spectre, which was thought to be one of the best James Bond movies of all time, they did a fake Day of the Dead parade at the beginning of the movie. As I was watching I thought

‘Oh I want to go to one of those Day of the Dead parades so badly.

I found out recently that Mexico City doesn’t actually do those parades, but this year for the first time ever, they are doing a Day of the Dead parade across the city inspired by the movie. And guess who’s conveniently staying in Mexico City to experience this?! ME. #mexicomagico

The parade was amazing and I had a blast. I wonder if they’ll do it next year? I hope so! Because I had a great time.

Thanks for reading!
