A sad trip to Mexico City

Posted in Arieanna & Ianiv, Photography

Last Saturday after talking to my mother I decided to book a trip to visit my grandfather in Mexico City. He was in the Hospital, very sick and my sister and I wanted to have a chance to see him again. We did get that chance, being able to be with him all day on Tuesday. He was conscious some of the time so he knew we were there to keep him company. Sadly, he passed away the next morning.

While I was there I took photos with my iPhone to put together a short photo diary. This trip was very difficult, stressful and full of emotions. With these photos I try to share some of that with you.

The best way of viewing this is with the Flickr slideshow, making sure descriptions are turned on: http://flickr.com/photos/ianivarieanna/sets/72157608818262497/show/.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I can feel how painful it was with your photos.

    I’m really sorry for your loss, Ianiv. My thoughts are with you.

  3. John says:

    Sorry to hear about this….at least you had a chance to say goodbye.

    Unfortunately we have had several losses like this in my wife and my family recently, so I can sympathize with your feelings. I am very sorry for your loss. I’m glad that you have family that remains though so that you can have future good memories in Mexico City; my grandfather’s death marked likely the last time I will visit his hometown and so it overshadows my many good memories there. Hopefully your grief will be brief.

    Actually, that was probably my last trip to Mexico City. All my close relatives live in Vancouver as well so I don’t have many reasons to go to Mexico City again.

    Sorry to hear about this Ianiv. As you know, this summer my aunt passed away so I had to do a similar trip. My thoughts are with you.
