    Mexico City, Mexico
    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Central American Independence Day

    Independence Lights

    Mexico City is full of colour at any time of year. But September brings a burst of reds whites and greens that cover the city in cloth flags, plastic bunting and sparkling lights. There's a buzz in the air as Independence Day approaches. Come the middle of the month, the country unconditionally unites to cheer to El Grito - the shout of independence. Nowhere in the city do the lights shine brighter, the crowds grow larger or are the cheers shouted louder than in the Zocalo, the huge central square in the heart of the metropolis.
