Folklore dancing on the main stage in Mendoza city center

Yes, we had a completely brilliant time at the 200th Independence Anniversary celebrations, both in Mendoza city centre and in our own neighbourhood. We went down to the local school and joined in there with Folklore dancing and our Murga group, and then in the afternoon headed off to town to do sports evangelism with all the crowds there, after a huge plate of traditional locro...basically a big mix of beans and corn and tasty, tasty meat... God Bless Argentina!
Bueno, tuvimos un dia maravilloso para las celebraciones del 25 de Mayo Bicentenario, en el centro de Mendoza ciudad, y en nuestro propio barrio. Fuimos a la escuelita primaria ahi, y nos unimos a las actividades con baile folcklore y la murga nuestra, y despues en la tarde fuimos al centro para hacer evangelismo de deportes con toda la gente ahi, despues de un plato grande de locro...que es basicamente una mezcla grande de porotos, maiz y rica, rica carne... Que Dios Bendiga Argentina!
