I stopped in at the Mexic-Arte Museum this afternoon while walking about in downtown Austin. They had a Day of the Dead display called “Love to Death” and the theme was Community Altars. There were so many colorful celebrations of life and death to behold.
If you live in America, you have been cheated out of fun all this time. You have been playing boring Bingo with combinations of letters and numbers like “B-12”. All along, Mexico has had a cooler version called Lotería with awesome picture cards like La Muerte (“Death”) and La Sirena (“The Mermaid”). I learned more about this today at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, and took some photos to help enlighten the rest of the planet. Now you can jettison your Bingo cards and pick up Lotería cards to replace them. You can thank me later with a small portion of your winnings. ¡Buena suerte! 🙂
