Mexico celebrated 200 years of independence on the 15 of September. Here is a collage of pictures of the celebration in Zacango. Like on the past Independence Days that we've been here for, part of the celebration included processing through town at night with celophane lanterns sculpted into different figures such as airplanes, dolls, churches, fowers etc. Only this year the lanterns seemed more grandiose in scale and creativity. Mexico City had been counting down the day to the bicentenial for the past year and had a massive celebration in the Zocolo (city square). As with all celebrations here in Mexico, people really know how to fiesta!
