Double Celebration..............



















Mexico is celebrating a double whammy in 2010 - first the Bicentennial on September 16th marking 200 years of Independence, quickly followed very recently by the Centenary of the Revolution on November 2oth marking 100 years since the uprising by Zapata and the like.....



















There have been parades, fiestas, events, shows, spectacles, dances, concerts, reenactments non-stop this year in a country already renowned for non-stop celebration - and the end is not yet in sight...........












What is currently being celebrated where you are right now???? For more global glimpses around the world this week, check out My World Tuesday by clicking here....Enjoy!!

Ah, you've finally overdosed on vibrant colours and toned everything down! Those senoritas are muy bonitas and obviously very strong in their sense of national pride. Lovely.

That looks like a great celebration! There doesn't feel like there's much to celebrate in the U.S.A. these days, after years of war and fear...

We're celebrating the snow! No, just joking. London, and especially the southeast, is paralysed. In the meantime, though:

Viva Zapata! :-)

Greetings from London.

Ahh, we celebrated the centennial here in Chicago too. There was a fabulous concert as well as a lot of art exhibits sponsored by the Mexican Council.
