¡Viva la Revolución!

JALPAN DE SERRA, Queretaro--While Mexico celebrated their Revolution Day on Nov. 20, we watched the revelers from the restaurant balcony of our hotel. There was dancing and parades all around to commemorate the 1910 revolution that put revolutionaries such as Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa on the map. It is believed that painter and activist Frida Kahlo, who was actually born in 1907, would tell people she was born with the revolution in 1910.

It's a tradition for children to dress up like revolutionaries and perform dances or skits.
