Mexican Independence in San Miguel de Allende

Lucy Nuñez, in her first term as mayor of San Miguel de Allende gave the traditional cry for independence "el grito" this year from the second story balcony of the historical home of Ignacio Allende, one of Mexico's heroes of the independence movement 200 years ago. This year, 2010, marks the first time a woman has ever done it. It's too bad the microphone was so low.

Watch the video all the way through to see the fireworks immediately following the Grito.
