Love the pix, Mona.

When we stayed for extended perriods in Mexico, we were surprised at just how often they set off fireworks. Any excuse would do.

We loved Mexico. The people we met were very friendly and helpful, as were the police who helped us off the Libre and onto the Cuota highway, and the military who checked the car several times for drugs and guns.

Happy Independence Day if there are any Mexicans reading this thread.
