Mexican Day of the Dead: The Altars

Mexican Day of the Dead:  The Altars
by Victoria Challancin

On Tuesday we visited a Day of the Dead Market in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, to see the alfeñiques, or sugar skulls and other sugar figures.  Today we stroll through the main square and environs to see some actual altars, made in loving tribute to departed loved ones.
