In the week since the Bicentennial, Mexico City has drifted back toward normalcy. Though the occasional snap of a distant firecracker persisted through the weekend, a hard rain on Friday night washed away any lingering festive sentiment. Yet the tricolor banners still hanging from buildings are a constant reminder that the celebration was intended to last the entire year, even when popular desire to celebrate has fizzled away and life has returned to a grayish normalcy.
