For Mexicans, this day is marked on the calendar as a famous date, however, it is not a holiday nor does it have as much relevance as foreigners might think, especially Americans, who consider this date as a very important day which makes honors to the Mexican identity.

Not all these photographs are new but they were captured over several years and we can see different landscapes, because as you will know if you are Mexican, and perhaps as a foreigner, Mexico is a country full of natural diversity. We have deserts, beaches, cities, forests, jungles, and practically every type of ecosystem. Each type of traveler has its favorite climates and areas, so we are sure that Mexico is a country capable of captivating any heart.

Unfortunately, NASA’s Earth Observatory shared a not-so-pretty image, betraying an oil spill that took place in 2010 in the Mexican Gulf.

Destruction has been part of man’s history and perhaps it is a process that is part of evolution or perhaps this is just an argument not to erase the smile that the first photographs have given us because we cannot doubt the majesty of a a country like Mexico.
