Let the Independence Begin!

The Bicentennario, Mexico’s 200th Independence celebrations are a little over a month away, although activities have been going on for about a month now and the gang’s all here!  Today at noon, casually strolling down the street, posing for cameras, came five mojiganga’s dressed for the revolution.

Three Spanish women. The woman on the right is Doña Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez.  Allende, Hidalgo and Domínguez, together, rang the bell in the church of Dolores, performing the first ‘Grito de Dolores’ the call for freedom which is now enacted on every independence day, calling the people together to fight for their independence.

Here they come, the women, followed by Allende & Hidalgo
