Why Mexico was bigger than the USA

Email sent: Sep 21, 2021 11:33am
My Aussie friends are always surprised with my Mexican Road trip stories.


Mexico is a much bigger country than people imagine.


The drive from Tijuana to Mexico City is 31 hours.  And if you kept heading east to Cancun you could drive for another 19 hours.


There is a lot to do and tons to see.


As big as it is today, Mexico is less than half the size it once was.


The first Mexican Empire’s vast territory was bigger than the USA when it first gained independence from Spain.


In fact, it included a large portion of Texas, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, California and Utah.


Era un imperio enorme. (it was a enormous empire.)


El Primer Imperio Mexicano (The first Mexico Empire) also included Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.


Those countries became the Central America Republic and later the separate countries we know today.


That’s why we find 7 countries celebrating independence from Spain between September 15 and 18.


Why not celebrate with them and me by declaring your independence and freedom in Spanish.

P.S. Chile, while not linked to the Mexican Independence also celebrates its independence around the same time on September 18. Making it the 7th Spanish Speaking country to celebrate its independence between September 15 and 18.
