Feliz Dia de los Muertos! “Happy Day of the Dead!”

I jut wanted to share with you some images that I took at my local university UTPA about El Dia de Los Muertos. This is the display that they had at the Lower Rio Grande Valley Special Collections. I was told that it was set up by Staff and Students of the Spanish department.

“Me fui sin decir adios a los que quise en la vida, alla los voy a esperar con besos de bienvenida.”

“I left without saying goodbye to those whom I loved in life, over there I’ll wait for them with the kisses of welcome.”
