As I post this set from my visit to Tlalpujahua it is the Day of the Dead and we’re getting ready for another photo trip to the area around Lake Janitzio. I’m excited, but I was excited for this trip also. Tlalpujahua is known as Mexico’s Christmas town because they make beautiful, hand blown ornaments that are sold all over Mexico and the world. They are truly beautiful, but so it the town itself. It is an old mining town, hilly, wooded, and somewhat alpen with a mixture of architectures that are unique to this area. Even if you are not a lover of all things Christmas it is definitely worth the time to visit.

I will be going back to Tlalpujahua. How can I not? I didn’t buy any ornaments or visit the old mine, or go to the famous ceramic factory…. One day, a part of a day is not enough. But, for you – there will be another set of photos from this trip tomorrow.
