Viva México!!! 🇲🇽 Feliz día de la Independencia!!!

 By: renerod : September 15th, 2020-17:58

Tonight we Mexicans celebrate the Independence Calling (El Grito de Independencia), and tomorrow 16th the Independence Day.

The September 16th of 1810, priest Miguel Hidalgo I Costilla called the people agains the bad government in the town of Dolores Hidalgo, located in Guanajuato province.

The Independence movement spanned for 11 years, while most of the heroes that started it died in the fight. The and of the war came until Sept. 27th of 1821 when Agustín De Iturbide and Vicente Guerrero entered the capital city with the Tri-warrant army.

It is considered the most important Mexican celebration. It unite us as one country, one people. Today we celebrate with traditional Mexican food, such as tacos, chiles rellenos, pozole, sopes and garnachas, and of course, your favorite drinks.

Tonight and tomorrow, everywhere there will be heard the traditional calling: VIVA MÉXICO CABRONES!!!

And of course with the pandemic, the official celebration will be carried on without the huge masses that gather at the Zócalo (Central plaza) in México City, but everyone of us will be united in our hearts in homes, maintaining the sanitary measures. It is sad to see the streets of our capital empty, but even so, we feel happy, fortunate and grateful for all who gave the most precious gift so the rest could be free and live better. In that sense, the fight is not over.

Feliz día de Independencia!!! Viva México!!!

I would love to have a girlfriend like her LooooL.

You should come and visit (well, when things get better)

 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-11:15
Sinaloa, Durango and Jalisco provinces.

You would be surprised.

Some years ago I was doing surveys for the government at rural towns in Sinaloa, and was very surprised of the number of beautiful girls. Many of them would have no problem finding jobs as models.

But they are so poor to leave their towns 😔

I hope things get better for everyone living at poor communities soon.

Best regards.


Gracias Amigo, I hope to visit Mexico one day, on the bucket list. [nt]

Yes my friend

On the other side, it is good that people didn’t get carried away by the desire to party and respected the quarantine, voluntarily.

It will all pass and we all will meet on the streets again!

President López Obrador gave a very emotive grito, but first made a minute long silence for all the fallen because of the pandemics, that we could see by national tv broadcast. Even at the distance, many of us feel connected and had a happy celebration within our homes.

Thanks for your comment my friend!

Stay safe.


Feliz Dia de la Independencia amigo René! Viva Mexico!! Sorry for the delay of my salute my friend! I did celebrate here with my son-in-law who was born in Mexico.

Cheers for your beautiful and Great Country my dear friend!
Receive my best cordial regards, Abel.
Abrazos amigo mio!

Thanks for your kind answer dear Abel!

 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-12:57
Never worry about it. I hope you are doing all well.

How was your celeb? What dishes did you have?

Best regards my dear friend.


Thanks a lot my friend Rene! Regrettably we are still in confinement (today 181 days!!!) so we meet in a nearby plaza with mouth protection and 2 meters distance only on week ends...

 By: Subexplorer : September 16th, 2020-13:14
... just for a little chat and to see our grandchildren a have a little sunlight and fresh air.

During the week we only meet through the phone camera.

Yesterday celebration was only by Facetime and a toast with tequila and sidra at both sides. My daughter prepared some typical meals for his husband at their home as they are very fond of Mexican foods and enjoy them so much.

I wish normal times will arrive to celebrate as it deserves. 

I wish you had a nice time celebrating at your home my dear friend! best cordial regards, Abel

The same thing here

 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-13:34
I meet with my brother and shared dinner, but wear masks at all time and kept distance.

But you now what? There are people who has it worst, with no jobs of food supply.

And then, there are those who have departed. We have to keep up our spirits.

This also will pass and we will be fine.

In the meanwhile, let’s keep safe.

My best wishes for you and your family dear Abel.


Agree with you dear Rene: we should be so grateful to be able to stay safe and healthy and maintain our jobs/work and have a home and food. We can´t ignore so many people departed...

 By: Subexplorer : September 16th, 2020-16:07
... many people lost beloved ones. 

Hope this will end soon for all Humankind.

Glad to know you were able to share dinner with your brother keeping safety measures of course.

Thank you for your kind good wishes my friend. Same to you!

Best! Abel

Gracias también a ti mi querido amigo

. . . that Alex Sunrise gifted almost ten years ago, and will have a sip tonight in both your honors!


Salud, mi querido Art!!!

How do you find tequila?

I drink it with lime slices and salt, straight.

Feliz día de independencia!!!


Gracias por Esto, Rene

And Mexico land of my Grandmother Miriam and GreatGrandfather Tobias Magaña and those before him...


Thank you for sharing all these nice pictures

 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-06:45
That show a little of our cultural richness and your proud Mexican heritage, dear Miguel! I remember that you shared before that your grandfather was governor of the state of Tabasco, right? There must be many stories to tell! Please, feel free to share with us.

Your grandparents should be very proud!

Best regards.


By the way...

 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-06:49
Tamales and chiles en nogada are exquisite!!!

When you visit Mexico City, I know a great place for chiles en nogada, it is even called “The Cathedral of Chiles en Nogada”.



I've pretty much quit drinking altogether in the last year, but . . .

 By: Dr No : September 16th, 2020-06:20
. . . when I was, tequila was my spirit of choice in the same sense Omega is my manufacturer of choice.


Porfidio was my favorite, but haven't seen a bottle in so long I fear they've gone out of business.  Don Julio 1942 is my current favorite.



Se share the best favorite makers then!

 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-06:52
About watches and tequila. But I recognize there are other brands that are worth trying!

Don Julio is not so stout and very palatable.

Best regards.
