12 September 2014
We just missed Independence Day last year and it's likely we'll leave just before it next year, so this is our one chance to be here for the holiday on the 16th. There are more fireworks every night as it gets closer and more flags sprouting up everywhere. We're aware of events starting tonight and continuing on till Tuesday. And I'm hearing stories about lots and lots of good Mexican food. I'm thinking this is going to be a good one.
