    Mexico paid tribute to Costa Rica, this past Thursday, for the 74th anniversary of the abolition of the army by José Figueres Ferrer, who was the President of the Founding Board of the Second Republic. The Aztec capital dressed its main monuments in the colors of the tricolor flag.

    This is how the Angel of Independence, the Monument to the Revolution, the Diana Cazadora fountain and the government buildings that surround the Zócalo wore  white, blue and red. The lighting of these historic sites occurred from 7 p.m. until 11:59 p.m. of this December 1st.
