Day Trip to Atotonilco

We drove out to Atotonilco which is a very small town just outside San Miguel de Allende. The town is famous for it’s church—the Sanctuary of Atotonilco. Our friends, Marcella and Primo, from Vancouver, Canada went with us and we had the nicest day in the country. We first stopped at the Hacienda Taboada for breakfast, then to the church and finally to Mama Mia’s for some drinks and a little snack. Here are a few photos from our day trip. Enjoy!

Domingo de Carnaval

Today is “crack an egg on someone’s head” day. Or as it’s known in Mexico—Domingo de Carnaval. Eggs are filled with confetti and you’re supposed to break the egg over your loved one’s head. I’m not exactly sure why, but it’s quite a festive notion.

We didn’t see too many people walking around with confetti on there heads, but it was very colorful in the El Jardin this morning—lots of people, lots of vibrant handmade flowers and lots of eggs for sale.
