Mexico – 202 years of turbulent independence

Congratulations, Mexico! On 16th of September 1810, 202 years ago, you declared your independence from Spain.

You have great challenges e.g. with crime, drugsfreedom of the press and human rights (even we Finns have been directly involved in that via Jyri Jaakkola’s unsolved killing). Still, there is always a bright side as well, like good food (see e.g. NBCLatino blog).

My pictures are from a visit to a restaurant – which name I did not record – in Mexico City year 2005. We could enjoy the tasty dinner without a hint of the troubles outside.

“Lot of money, little work, cheap tequila. Long live Mexico!”
