Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Today’s video is called “A day in the life of Guanajuato” and was send to us by one of our readers. We love it when you guys send us your videos so please keep them coming! The video was created by Team A&W and this is what they had to say about their short drone film:

“Guanajuato is a magical place, especially when you see it from the air. Here is the link to a video my fiancé shot in Guanajuato, Mexico. It was taken over two days, and I hope it shows the beauty of that special place.”

It sure does look beautiful and colorful. So grab your cup of coffee and check it out!
