Dear Colleague,

President Evo Morales of Bolivia made his first official trip to Mexico on Sunday for an event scheduled by the Mexico City government. Kristin Bricker reports on Morales’ visit to Mexico:

“Hundreds of Mexicans crowded into the central plaza in Coyoacan, an upscale neighborhood in southern Mexico City, to hear Morales speak. Many wove wiphala flags, the rainbow-colored flag that represents Andean indigenous peoples in Bolivia. Bolivia’s new constitution, written during President Morales’ administration, officially recognizes the wiphala as a government flag.
