The 20th Guadalajara International Book Fair (FIL) edition, will take place from november 25 until december 30 at the Expo Guadalajara (Latin America's biggest convention center).
I'm gonna try to avoid talking much about this now, because you're about to read sooooo much about it the next week. It's some of the most expected events in this city. So for now, here it is the billboard announcing it, and as you can guess the Guest of Honor this year is Andalusia (Andalucía in spanish).

I think malls are pretty much the same in every country. This is La Gran Plaza Mall. You find the same: entertainment, cinema teathers, food, shoping, etcetera.

El Ex-convento del Carmen
I saw this paint in the Ex-convento del Carmen's exhibition of exprimental art and I really liked it, it is so real.
The Carmen Ex-convent is a space opened to everyone for free where you can find different and diverse artistic manifastations. There are 5 rooms with exhibitions of painting, photography or sculpture of local or foreign artists.
Another permanent activities are the Musical Tuesdays or Literary Wednesdays. Also it has a cinema room, coffee house and book store.

Well in Mexico we don't have dead penalty, it was abolished because we believe in life. This figure is just a puppet that moves everytime you get the in the blank. Is for practicing your skills as a shooter in a fair.

As november 2nd we all went to the cementery, I felt attracted by this tomb. I was walking down this stairs to see what was behind but never got there... the curious thing is it wasn't decorated as the others, so I felt alone.

Dia de Muertos (day of the dead)
Pan de Muerto (bread of the dead) is also popular, and the recipe may change in different places of the country, it is sweet bread with some figures representing bones.
Perhaps the most famous celebration of the dead in Mexico are the skull candies, live the ones in the pic, made of sugar and they put your name in the skull. You can give them as a gift to your friends and relatives. It is nothing morbid, it is only a way to think that sooner or later we are going to die, so it is better to enjoy the life.
Also is common to give figures of skeletons having normal activities, like playing guitars, dancing, singing, cooking, professors, etc. Some of them are made of clay and others of papier mache.

Theme day!! "Something that is about to disappear"
Something that is about to disappear…??? Let me think, my memory?? I totally forgot about this, but hey a little too late, watching this scenario, just at the middle of the highway between Zapotlanejo and Guadalajara I started to think on how fast this city is growing. I can think that is for sure that in no more than 10 years this will be full of houses, factories, restaurants… or anything.
