Young and brash and prim Americans with their star spangled enthus. On the left, the girl is wearing a cowboy hat.

Mexico and her sombrero. Mexico is located near the equator. The girls in her country is literally hot. They wear this hat with wide brim to protect themselves from the sun. Note the Coat of Arms in the Mexico flag on the girl's badana. It features a cactus, another produce of Mexico. The turf of the Spanish Mexico once extends upwards to what today is USA's California, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona. They are lost to USA in 1848 due to Manifest Destiny.
