TODAY IS Mexico’s version of the Fourth of July.
Here on the mountaintop, we start partying on the previous evening, and we continue today. I don’t participate much because I’m not party people.
I did salute the flag yesterday evening on the plaza as a police band played, and the banner was brought down for its usual overnight siesta indoors.
That makes the third time since I became a citizen in 2005 that I’ve saluted the Mexican flag. It’s not that I avoid it. I just rarely find myself at an event where it’s appropriate.
I’ll admit it feels weird. Wish it didn’t but it does.
While downtown yesterday, I took the photo while sitting on a cement bench on the plaza. And, of course, you’ll find other Fabulous Fotos by Felipe right here, amigos.
¡Viva México! Bring on the tacos and cerveza.
