Photographer's Note

I hope that I don't bore you with another statue of a Mexican national hero. But, like with Emiliano Zapata, I was surprised to see this statue of Benito Juárez, precisely in downtown of San Diego, California, USA, in Pantoja Park, bounded by Kettner Blvd, E St, State St and G St (see satellite view).
Pablo Benito Juárez García (1806-1872) is the greatest hero of Mexico. He served five terms as President. Benito Juárez was the first indigenous (a Zapotec) Mexican to serve as President.
See more info in Wikipedia, e.g.
In workshop there are plaques with the inscriptions:
Benito Juarez. 1806-1972. This statue was given in friendship from the people of Mexico to the people of San Diego. June 18, 1981.
Benito Juarez. 1806-1972. Este monumento fue obsequiado en amistad por el pueblo de Mexico al pueblo de San Diego. 18 de junio de 1981.
