Happy Independence Day, Mexico!!

Happy Independence Day, Mexico!!
by armyveteran101st

This is a video I made also for my first YouTube account, at some point in the last couple of years, in honor of my other country, Mexico. I'm posting it here and now to celebrate the upcoming anniversary of Mexican independence from Spain, which was proclaimed on September 16th, 1810.

My father was from Mexico, and I spent a significant portion of my childhood and young adulthood there with him. I had the opportunity to travel extensively around the country, and to share in the richness of its culture and the warmth of its people.

The musical piece is called "Huapango de Moncayo", and it is one of the most beloved Mexican musical compositions next to the Mexican National Anthem. The images depict the many different views and places that the country offers, and also a little bit of its history.
