Peace Boat Hibakusha Project visits Isla Cozumel

On the morning of Tuesday, October 23, Cozumel Island welcomed with open arms the Peace Boat Cruise, an emblematic transatlantic cruise that fosters peace and shares with the world the experiences that marked the lives of the inhabitants of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in an event that marked the end of World War II.
Tokuko Kimura, is a survivor of the atomic bombs launched on two Japanese cities and that today, still continues to affect the inhabitants of these important cities. That is why through Peace Boat, conferences are held with the survivors of this catastrophe so that the world knows its history and know how chaotic a nuclear war can become and the implications it has on the new generations.
The exhibitors enjoyed their stay in the Island, always sharing their experience, as the Peace Boat navigates to promote peace, human rights, fair and sustainable development and respect for the environment, with the aim of creating and promoting awareness and promoting thus, social and political changes in the world.
The crew that travels on the cruise, are retired adults and young people motivated to create social awareness through messages that they share in the different ports where the boat arrives. Different areas make up the ship  and decorations contain message of peace. There are areas of relaxation and meditation.  There is an auditorium for exhibitions  in the different ports, to promote positive social and political changes, aimed to implement best practices in responsible tourism.
The boat creates a neutral and mobile space that allows its participants to cross borders and initiate links of cooperation and dialogue in the open sea and in the ports they visit.

All Saints Day and Day of the Dead in Cozumel Mexico

Dia de Todos Los Santos & Dia de Los Muertos

The history of the Day of the Dead dates back over 3,000 years. Life was seen as a dream and it was believed that only in dying was a human being truly awake and the soul set free. On display in Mexican hotels, restaurants, and other public places are special Day of the Dead altars decorated with candles, food, and sacred orange marigold flowers called cempaxochitl, or Flor de Muerto (“Flower of the Dead”).

The bakeries on island are filled with sweets shaped in the symbols of skulls, and flowers and memorials fill the cemetery. Every bakery will be selling “Pan de Muerto” (Bread of the Dead) which is semi-sweet sugarcoated bread made from eggs and citrus fruit flavors. Traditionally it is served with hot chocolate that has been mixed with cinnamon.
