Categories: Latin America, Mexico, Arts & Culture, History

“The Bicentenario kicks off tonight, marking Mexico’s 200th year of independence from Spain. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime celebration and a huge deal here in Mexico City.” This is how Lesley Téllez begins her post [1] in The Mija Chronicles, where she goes on to describe other things about the celebration. She also shares photos of what downtown Mexico City looked like yesterday.
