I’ve been a bit lazy lately and haven’t really gone out for more photos. Bill and I have been busy with moving and getting adjusted to life in Mexico. So I decided to go back through some of my photos and re-post some of my favorite photos from over the years. I hope to get back out on the streets soon for more photos. Enjoy!
I walked into Centro this morning to do some shopping. This weekend is the St. Michael’s celebration. They’ve had parades and fireworks all weekend, but I thought the festivities were finished. Wrong! They had another parade this morning. I didn’t have my camera, but I managed to get some video on my phone. Enjoy!
There is a new (to me) art installation adjacent to the El Jardin. It’s a large bronze statue of an angel in a boat. It is very cool! Here are a few photos of the angel, the parroquia (church) and a wonderful trumpet man. Enjoy!
On this last trip to San Miguel de Allende, I met up with our friend Kathy in Leon. She was transporting a new Yorkie named Gringo to her friends, Jackie and Patrick, in SMA. Kathy and I delivered Gringo to his new mom, dad and brother Paco. He was such a sweet little boy I kept threatening to steal him and bring him home. Here are a few photos I got of Gringo, Kathy’s dog named Sedona, and Gringo’s new brother Paco. Enjoy!
Kathy and I walked up to the El Jardin one evening to watch the fashion show. Vicente Fox and his wife were there. It was a lot of fun and some very nice fashion. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
I just returned from San MIguel de Allende. I stayed with our friends Michael and Kathy. Kathy and I probably walked about 20 miles during the week I was there, but it was worth every step as we got some really fun photos of the city. Enjoy!
Last night was the Dia de Los Muertos party at the Instituto de Allende. Lots of people showed up in costume for the event. Here are a few photos from the evening. Enjoy!
Let the party begin. This evening Bill and I went to Fabrica Aurora for one of the first of many parties celebrating Dia de Los Muertos. We’re told this is sort of a dress rehearsal for the big celebration later next week. There were quite a few folks in costume and I tried to get a few fun photos which wasn’t easy with all the people around. Enjoy!
Yesterday, Bill and I visited Cañada de la Virgen which is a pyramid located about 40 minutes southeast of San Miguel de Allende. It was really something to see. It’s estimated to be about 900 years old. If you’d like to know more about it, you can click here to read more. I hope you enjoy the photos.
Here are a few new photos from our adventure in San Miguel. Enjoy!
