Mexican Independence Day ... As it turned out, the Mexicans are a very patriotic people. We felt this from the very first days of our stay in this country. They love their food, love their music, they respect each other, and live together. Approximately 2 weeks before the holiday, when we did not yet know about it, we felt that something was approaching. A holiday. First, supermarkets started selling sweets and fruits in national colors and gift wrapping, then shops with national props began to appear on the streets - flags, scarves, outfits, brooches in the form of a Mexican flag, sambrero, and even the Mexican mustache)) We googled the nearest holidays and it turned out that the Independence Day is coming.
September 16 - in this day, long time ago, in 1810, began the war between the Mexican people and the Spanish colonialists. Now the holiday begins on the evening of the 15th, a big concert is organized on the main square, the entrance to which is absolutely free, but you will have to stand in line. All the streets leading to the main square are full of kilometer queues and thousands of policemen. When you pass to the square, you are examined pohlesche than at the entrance to the plane, and even several times. It was nice to see how an endless crowd of people sing Mexican songs and people around are looking forward to fireworks, also there were whole separate zones where children and adults had fun, cheerfully launching balloons in the form of long sharp tubes that easily leaping into the air and slowly landing. And at 11 pm the city was watching an incredible, insanely beautiful salute.
The next day, through the whole center, a long parade marched, demonstrating the military might of Mexico. The parade passes many kilometers, and throughout the distance the crowds accompany him, applaud the military, shout and rejoice. It seems that being a military in Mexico is very honorable. And the military look much more impressive than the guys we saw at the Russian parades. After what we saw, it became a bit scary from the thought that military actions and wars are very terrible phenomena!
