  Mexican Army in Parade, San Miguel de Allende, MX
by karenincalifornia

Even the Mexican Army joined the parade celebrating the birthday of Ignacio Allende who led the town of San Miguel de Allende to independence in 1810.

In addition to rifles, the soldiers carried drums and trumpets.

There actually was far less military presence in San Miguel de Allende than other parts of Mexico we have visited.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
