and so we enter the month in which you can find a mexican flag on any given corner of the city. Why? because Mexico it pretty excited about its freedom from Spain's tyrannical rule. (that's a gross over simplification. I suggest that you go ask your favorite Mexican friend to explain the significance of September 16th. You don't have a Mexican friend? go find one!)
Last week we were sitting around the table with Sam - - giving her an intro to the city, and we asked the kids what Spanish word they thought Sam should know.
Josu threw his fist in the air and shouted LIBERTAD!
Aaaah my boy is becoming Mexican.
