  The Independencia
Posted on Aug 30th, 2007

It's late August, and the flags and patriotic memorabilia are out on the streets of Mexico. Here are some pictures of the various flag stands in San Miguel and Dolores Hidalgo. The Mexican Independencia is a major event all over Mexico with music, fireworks, the Grito being sung out on balconies all over the country at 10 P.M. There isn't a dry eye in the crowd. There are two more weeks before the Independencia & more Pictures to come, as the weeks progress.
