Welcome to the A-Z challenge, where we'll be blogging our way through the alphabet throughout the month of April. My theme will be places--it may be a specific place, a state, or a country. It will be whatever I think is spooky, beautiful, or intriguing. I'll be rating each stop on the way with those factors, with 5 being the highest score, and 1 being the lowest score. I hope it will inspire any writers, or travelers out there in Bloggerland. So, thanks for stopping by, and enjoy!
M = Mexico
Our tour stops have led us to unusual locations, but this location on our next stop is really over the top. Located in Mexico, south of Mexico City is the Island of Dolls, or in Spanish Isla De Las Munecas. As in the name, it literally is an island covered in dolls. They hang in just about in every tree, making you feel like you're being watched.
A hermit named Don Julian Santana Barrera, moved there. He said he was haunted by a ghost of a little girl who had drowned in a canal. He placed them around his home as a shrine to the little girl spirit. In 2001, his nephew found him dead in the same canal where the little girl was said to have drowned. Now this island is one of the weirdest tourist locations. People claim the dolls whisper to you.
I for one, wouldn't step foot here. This is creepy to the max! I watched an episode of TAPS that investigated the paranormal claims here, and weird things happened. Would you visit The Island of Dolls? I'm opting out of this location because it's to creepy for me.
