Mexican Independence Day!

Mexican Independence Day - 16 of September

Independence Day is celebrated in Mexico on 16th September. It commemorates the day, on 16th September 1810 in the small town of Dolores, in the province of Guanajuato in Mexico, when a handful of people were summoned by a parish priest to take up arms against the Spanish colonial government - the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Thus began the fight for independence that ended 350 years of Spanish rule. 

To this day, the church bell that was used to call people to revolt hangs in the National Palace in Mexico City and is rung on the eve of 16th September each year by the President of Mexico.

Snakes of Baja

Baja California rattlesnake
(
Crotalus enyo enyo)
by Karri Moser

Snakes, like most people, know Baja is a great place to be and they certainly have no reason to leave. With these serpents still roaming the land, they are bound to cross paths with us at certain times. Luckily in most cases, an actual snake bite almost never results in serious harm or death. In fact, in the United States over 45,000 people are bit each year. Only 8,000 of those bites are poisonous and only 9 to 15 of those cause death. Despite the low chance of ever being bit or dying from a bite, the thought does strike fear in the hearts of even the toughest traveler or Baja resident. It is lucky for us humans that the old adagethey are more afraid us than we are of themproves to be true.
