The Ambassador of Mexico Mr Eduardo Medina-Mora and his wife Laura opened their beautiful Belgravia residence to celebrate El Grito, the country’s Independence Day festival. Guests toasted the occasion with Margaritas and fine Mexican cuisine while browsing a photography exhibition on Mexico City by Artist Ulises Castellanos. In his Independence Day remarks, the Ambassador said the recent elections “reaffirmed” Mexico’s democracy and said the country was “opening a new chapter”.
