Night of the witches – The Hindu


The first Friday of March…and I flew off to Catermaco. A sight not to be missed, whether you believe in magic or not.

It was the first Friday of March and I was restless. The winter cold still hung in the air and I wanted something that would shake out the chills from within me. It was then I heard about the Noche de Brujas. It sounded like a delicious snack but, no, it was not…in fact, it translated as Night of the Witches. It sounded exciting enough, so I made further enquiries and found that this festival happens in Catemaco, a city south of the Mexican state of Veracruz and is located on Lake Catemaco.
