Yesterday we went to the Mummy Museum in Guanajuato and it was amazing. And weird as hell. A bit about the museum: in Guanajuato, they had a tax from the 1860s to the 1950s for burial plots at the local cemetery. If families of the deceased were unable to pay the tax, their loved ones would be removed from the cemetery. To make this weirder, in Guanajuato the soil contains minerals that have the effect of preserving the bodies. The result is that when bodies were taken out of the cemetery, they were often in an amazingly, um, fresh state. Then along came some genius who decided to put the mummified remains on display for a $3 ticket and BOOM! You have the most creepy and cool museum we've ever seen!
