All Soul's Day & Dia de los Muertos celebrations in the southern state of Oaxaca are unlike any other. The local reverence for these dates exudes affecting energy—bewitching the rest of the world. The already densely packed cemeteries in and around Oaxaca City swell with a juxtaposition of heavy hearts, and glory! Gifts, decorations, embellishments, visitors, and mourners spill out, and into the cemeteries' surroundings and avenues. For two nights, a rousing carnival atmosphere absorbs Oaxaca.

Follow a spirited, young soul as she comes back to visit, and celebrate All Souls Day & Dia de los Muertos—from Panteón Municipal de Tlacolula, tianguis en Tlacolula, onto Xoxocotlán, San Felipe del Agua, Oaxaca de Juarez and inside the marvel of Panteón General.
