The Island of Dolls

Planning your next eerie vacation? Maybe consider Mexico’s unsettling “Island of Dolls” in Xochimilco! I am a huge sucker for anything with creepy old dolls, maybe we can build the next Gloomth headquarters there.

The story is that the one man who inhabited this “island” (it’s a manufactured agricultural plot in a canal I guess) collected dolls from the trash and hung them from the trees to ward off evil and to appease the spirit of a dead girl he discovered in the water nearby.

Now that he’s deceased do you suppose he wishes someone would continue to hang dolls for his spirit?

More photos taken at this strange and perfectly creepy place can be seen here or here. 🙂
