today is the 198th anniversary of the independence of mexico from spain. last night, there was a big party in the square, wth dancing, music, speeches, food, and “the shout”, which involves everyone yelling “viva!” to everything and everyone mexicano. a good time was had by all.
i have to say that casas grandes is a very friendly and comfortable town to be in. moreso than many places i have visited. we may come and stay for two or three months sometime.
