Dia de Los Meurtos

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!

Cañada de la Virgen

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.

Luna Tapas Bar

The other night we met some friends at the Luna Tapas bar at the Rosewood Hotel. It’s a favorite place to go to get some nice photos of San Miguel. Enjoy!

Walking Around San Miguel de Allende

Bill and I took the car to be washed yesterday and decided we’d walk around the Ancha de San Antonio area of town. We found this wonderful old church which we were told is one of the oldest churches in town. We then visited our favorite store in town that carries candles, furniture, art and lighting. We call it Anvil because they use an anvil as their logo and have a large stone anvil at the front of the store. It’s real name is Casa Armida and their merchandise is stunning.

Fabrica la Aurora, San Miguel de Allende

Bill and I went out to Fabrica la Aurora yesterday. It’s an old fabric mill that has been converted to shops and art galleries. Most galleries won’t let you take photos inside their shops so here are a few photos of the grounds. It’s quite pretty and the galleries are stunning.

Rain and Thunderstorms in San Miguel

We’ve had several thunderstorms the past couple of days and the forecast is for more so I thought I go around the house and snap some photos of all the beautiful flowers that grow on the property. Enjoy!
