I’ve cut myself off but I’ll hang out with the gang and close the place

Just a random collection of photographs today, taken in EPCOT’s Mexico pavilion. Mexico has long been a favorite of mine, ever since I discovered the frozen mango margaritas there! But there are other things that make Mexico special, too. Here are just a few:
ABOVE: It only LOOKS like a pineapple – these guys are making tequila! This is part of a mural that covers the wall in La Cava Del Tequila, the relatively new tequila bar inside the Mexico pavilion.
ABOVE: This lizard carving is a sample of folk art from Oaxaca (wah-HAH-ka), Mexico. I thought he was cute, but if he was real and on my lanai – not so much!
ABOVE: The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that occurs right after Halloween. This festival dates back to Aztec times (only back then, it was a month long!). People remember and honor their ancestors on this day, sometimes dressing up as a skeleton in clothing. They even visit the graves and make a picnic of the deceased’s favorite foods!
