London welcomes Mexico

Today President Peña Nieto of Mexico began a state visit to the United Kingdom.  London was dressed up for the visit.

Of course there is a permanent Mexican presence here, at the Embassy on St. George Street, London W1.

    My fellow blogger at https://distantdrumlin.wordpress.com/ captured these wonderful photos President Peña Nieto in London. The Mexican president (with his lovely wife) was visiting with the Queen of England and Prince Phillip. Enjoy.!!
