Mexico City Bringing Spectre to Life
Mexico City. Day of the Dead. James Bond. Who would have thought those few words together would have become reality?

What's the first thing you think of when James Bond comes to mind? The licence to kill? The insatiable women? The cars & clothes? Well, let's just say that Mexico City took inspiration from 007 to the limit.
I don't blame you if you had thought the Day of the Dead scene is based on reality. Mexico City has never paraded for el Dia de los Muertos. Taking advantage of the success of the last 007-franchise and the spotlight, it's a brilliant opportunity to see what the Mexican's to show the rest of the world how it really goes.
Saturday October 29 is el Dia de los Muertos. 1,200 volunteers have donated their time for an estimate 150,000-1 million people to watch.
