mummy

In honor of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, I bring you mummies from Mexico! We took these photos (I believe Mr. Bunchofpants did the actual photographing) ten years ago on our trip to Guanajuato, which of course had to include a visit to the Museo de las Momias (hay una pagina en español aqui). He was using a bottom-of-the line point-and-shoot camera (sort of one step above a disposable), and the mummies were all encased in glass, so the quality isn't spectacular.

 

For anyone planning a trip to Mexico, I wholeheartedly recommend a visit to Guanajuato.

 

Just for the record, I'd like to be cremated when I die.
