This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
Independence Day is a big day for central America, as it represents their independence from Spain - declared in 1821. You can literally hear it coming, because school children practise their drumming and marches in the weeks running up to the big day. It was quite the event, with the school kids drumming from early in the morning and flags everywhere. Some people even set off these kinds of bombs throughout the day, which can be a little disconcerting at first!
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it.
