Día de los Muertos in Pátzcuaro, Michoacán

A typical roadside in the Lake Patzcuaro region, Michoacan

Remember my trip to Patzcuaro? It was a research for an article on Día de Los Muertos there. The article was just published American Way magazine, American Airlines’ in-flight publication.

Check it out here.

And now, since I’m currently sick, I’m going to go back to sipping manzanilla and ordering groceries online from Superama. But I can’t pick anything too crazy, because then they might not have it, even though it appears right there on the screen. (They let you order it, and then they call and say, “Señora Lesley? No tenemos espinacas. Lechuga romana está bien?”)

If you know of any homeopathic ways to relieve sinus pressure, I’m all ears.

    I discovered Neti pots thru a DF blog that I follow…(do not remember which one now) I have suffered sinus problems forever but not since I started rinsing…I use the squeeze bottle, but same results. Google it..

    I clicked to comment and Ken stole my thunder. I second the neti pot. You can buy plastic ones at Walgreens for $10, helps clear everything out. I’m sure you can find them there, but I can always expedite a care package if needed.

    just got off an AA flight and enjoyed your article on Patzcuaro. we spend most of our time in Merida, but I’ve always wanted to experience the holiday in Michoacan. Appreciate your tips and information…maybe next year we’ll make the trip.

    Great article, but no thanks…..now there will be more traffic in the weeks to come.
    Today it was nice and peaceful, even found a parking spot on the grande plaza.
