Happy Dia de los Muertos

Today is the second day of Dia de los Muertos.
The Day of the Dead. It is the Hispanic
celebration of the memory of deceased ancestors. I
would have to say that there are probably only a
small handful of people at McMurdo that will be
"celebrating" the holiday, let alone even know that
the day exists. My co-worker, Maria is probably one
of them. I will wish her a Happy Dia de los Muertos
when I see her at work today. In the meantime, I will
think of my ancestors and be grateful for everything
they did to make sure I could be here today. Especially
my Grandma and Grandpa Hamann and Grandpa and Grandpa
Smith. I miss them and I hope that that they are
thinking of me today as well.

Hi Tom!

Happy dia de los Mueros to you too! I'm probably the only person I know that knows of this celebration too. Ever had a sugar skull?

I've been keeping up on your adventure on the ice. I must admit I'm learning quite a bit, I didn't realize how many people were actually down there.

Take care and I'll keep checking in .

I forgot to say Happy Birthday too!
I'd write Feliz spanish for you but I wouldn't spell it correctly! :-)
