Wonderful Wednesdays: Grito Mexicano

Yesterday was Mexico’s Independence day and I got a bit nostalgic at childhood memories of amazing fireworks and festive crowds. I remember being awed by the beauty of the fireworks, all the sounds, feeling deeply happy to be in a crowd celebrating con orgullo, echandole ganas in joining everyone else al grito Mexicano. 30 palabras más
