Dia de los muertos

On November 3rd Nicaraguans celebrated Dia de los muertos, visiting their family gravesites to clean and decorate them.  The day before people bought armfuls of bright flowers to lay on the graves.  All along the paths of the cemetery vendors sold tamales and buñuelos, balls of fried yucca drenched in molasses.
