Viva Mexico Cabrones

Happy Independence Day to all my Mexican amigos. I’m sorry I can’t be there to share it with y’all. Instead, the same as every year since 2010, I’ll post my video from the Bicentenario. And the same as every year, I’ll say ‘wow, has it really been so many years since that great day?’ So this is my most unoriginal post of the year, but it’s become my own personal annual nostalgic tradition.

Every now and then in Mexico, to my amusement, I’d get asked when the UK’s Independence day is. Perhaps next year, I’ll be able to tell them. It’s three days after yours. September the 18th. Because, if Scotland gains its independence from the UK, does England not also gain it’s independence, albeit by default?


  • By the way, I had almost forgotten that tomorrow is Independence Day until I read your blog. I don’t mean to be a copycat, but I then wrote a short entry on my blog.

  • Great video!
    I’ll be returning to Mexico in November, and my friend in D.F. tells me that there is supposed to be a light and sound show on the Zócalo that month. I hope that we have a chance to see it, although it surely will not be as spectacular as the “Bicentenario” celebration.
    ¡Viva México!
