What Screams Mexico to Me

I love a celebration!  OH how I wish I was in Mexico this week; September 16th is Independence Day. Nothing would make me happier than to experience the festivities. REALLY, what could be better than an authentic Mexican Independence Day Fiesta! Since I can’t be there, I;ve made a photo fiesta to honor and celebrate Independence Day with mis amigos about what screams or cries (el grito) Mexico to me. VIVA MEXICO!

1. The kindness, generosity and hospitality of the Mexican people can be seen in their faces and screams Mexico to me:

    Great list. You’ll have to come to Santa Fe. We can offer most of the things you mentioned- we just don’t have the ancient Mayan sites- but we have some of our own.
    Mark your calendar and go down next September 16th and join the fun!
