Day of the Dead Themed Mural

Because of the Bus Driver Strike, I had to walk to the grocery store today. A nearly 4 mile roundtrip walk. I took advantage of the trip not only to get a few days worth of groceries, but to get a close up view of this mural. A mural that I pass in the bus whenever I go to the store.
