happy 200th to Mexico!!!
« on: September 15, 2010, 01:21:33 PM »

Lots of information in our media about today being Mexico's 200th anniversary.  Hope all goes well in the celebrations and our top spinning friends get a lot of business with their trompos.

"Mexicans never give up," Gomez Mendoza said.  "We're a country that never loses its pride."

It was a long awaiting, Mike, but, ...although I couldn´t download the video from mi camara, you can see it here...

 (youtube) 15 DE SEPTIEMBRE 2010 (LO MEJOR) Celebración del Grito en el Zócalo Ciudad de México

the moment in which it appears the toys is the minute 3:19.
ha! the big top is between two figures very typical from here, that, by themselves, are figures , are tricks of the top...
: Los voladores de Papantla and The wheel of fortune, ..ha, ha, ha....!

Enjoy the video.!!!

Nice to see that giant pegtop in the parade representing something from Mexican traditional popular culture.



I really liked that it not only spins but also precesses  :)

By the way, that is a pretty impressive celebration.
