Guanajuato trip: Museo del las Momias

********WARNING: contains graphic content below*********

We traveled all the way to Guanajuato, Mexico to visit the smallest mummy in the world.  What we found was an astounding and horrifying collection of hundreds and hundreds of poor souls, stripped down and lined up in air-conditioned glass coffins. 
I've previously posted about the museum when it was listed as one of the world's most horrifying destinations, but here is a little background in case you didn't see that post:

The museum is what's left over of a sunken crypt where the deceased were stacked in the event that family members could not afford the annual grave tax. The graveyard was very crowded from a typhoid outbreak and the dry hot conditions naturally mummified the remains. One tourists began taking an interest, a fee was charged and the mummies remain desecrated for all eternity in the museum. 

It was an indescribable experience, very distrubing, and I'm pretty sure we are cursed now~!!!

More to come on the other horrors of our trip ^_^


I think we are cursed....


Definitely cursed.
