Dia de la Revolucion

Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolucion) is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori. It is on the third Monday in November, near the official day on November 20. Outdoor events such as bazaars, festivals and parades are part of the Revolution Day celebrations, where shouts of “Viva la Revolución!” and “Viva Mexico!” are heard. The parade was very colourful, went on for hours.

  1. Mexico is amazing, I love it. So different to Nicaragua. The food is amazing and so cheap. Yes. Language is a problem. I have learnt a lot of Spanish, enough to ask for things but not enough to have a conversation. Oddly Nicaragua was easier. They are taught English.
