The Catrina.

In the previous blog, I told you about the fascination Mexicans have with death. Here is another example of it, a museum entirely dedicated to the death.

In the middle of the adjacent photo, the Catrina can be seen. She is a female skeleton dressed in nice clothes and usually wearing a hat. She is a popular character of the Mexican culture.

Here is an old and somewhat disturbing tradition. At one point in the past, people were taken photographs of themselves with dead baby relatives. Sorry, it's a bit morbid.
