A Day At The Park...

Today we took my mom to a beautiful park called ¨Cerro de las Campanas¨ (Hill of the Bells). It is called this because some of the rocks in the park are composed of a mixture of metals that make them sound like bells when you hit them. This park is also the site where in 1867 the Austrian Emperor Maximiliano and his two Generals were executed and the triumph was sealed for the Republic of Mexico as a sovereign nation.
