Mineral de Pozos

Yesterday, we visited Mineral de Pozos. It’s a quaint little town about 45 minutes from San Miguel de Allende. We had lunch at the Hotel Posada de las Minas which is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the city. While having lunch we met a very nice gentleman named Alex who agreed to take us to one of the old mines on the edge of town. We visited the Mina de Triangulo hacienda where they used to mine gold, silver, mercury and several other minerals. Alex was very knowledgeable about the mine and told us that at one point over 7,000 miners were killed when one of the mines flooded. It’s a fascinating place and we hope to return to see more. Here are a few photos from our day trip. Enjoy!

S.O.M.E. Mother’s Day Luncheon

S.O.M.E. (So Others May Eat) held their weekly lunch at the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel and celebrated Mother’s Day by handing our roses and aprons to all the women. It was a beautiful event—including a mariachi band. Bill waited tables are there were over 200 people in attendance. Here are some of my favorite photos from the event. Enjoy!

P.S. This was the first time I asked the folks if I could take their portrait and they were so sweet and beautiful!

Hummies

It’s hard to think of a better way to spend the morning than sitting in the front garden and watching the hummingbirds swoop in for a little nectar from our feeder. We have at least four hummingbirds that enjoy our feeder daily and we have to fill up the feeder about every other day. Enjoy!
