Tom succumbs to Will and Alya's "need" for plastic glow in the dark stuff

Janan and Alya sit on the curb waiting for the action to start

gelado in the jardin

Streets were full, note the large "firework" display just left of the cathedral.  Eventually there was a man on top of this thing shaking it to get all the parts moving.  The buildings surrounding the square all had massive fireworks shooting off of them as well.  It was quite a spectacle.  We watched the main fireworks show from our house up on the hill.  There were so many people in the jardin that you could literally barely move.

Two hundred years ago, Allende and Hidalgo, two prominent revolutionaries from this area, come riding into town to launch Mexico's struggle for independence from Spain
