31st Annual He She Bang in Madrid

Last night was the final dress rehearsal for the 31st Annual He She Bang in Madrid. The theme this year was Pandora’s Box and it was great fun. The show will be running this weekend (11/10-11/11) and next weekend (11/17-11/18). It’s a crazy, wacky, raunchy show and great fun. Congratulations all the cast members for a fantastic show. Here are some photos from the evening. Enjoy!

He She Bang (A Musical) in Madrid

This past November the Madroids (Madrid locals) performed the 30th annual He She Bang. The He She Bang originated as a benefit for a local gentleman suffering from HIV and AIDS and has continued as a charity event to support the Madrid medical and dental fund. The theme this year was the “Sordid History of Coal Gulch.” We attended the final dress rehearsal and it was hilarious. The actors portrayed

Luis Miguel in San Miguel de Allende

I can’t believe we missed this performance. Luis Miguel sings with Mariachi in San Miguel de Allende. He was even filmed at the Luna Bar atop the Rosewood Hotel where Bill and I enjoyed many an evening. According to the stories we found he’s going to release (or has released) a new album. Granted, I’m not sure when this video was made, but we’ve been fans of Luis Miguel for

Ceramica La Catrina Factory

Yesterday, we visited the Ceramica La Catrina factory in Dolores Hidalgo. What a wonderful place! These folks create the most amazing ceramic figures.

Many of these catrinas are as tall as

Panteón Municipal “Luz Eterna”

There are several cemeteries in town and the ones located in centro date back hundreds of years. This cemetery seems a bit newer and is really for the “common” person.

Monarchs Returning to Mexico

It that time of year. It’s time for monarch butterflies to migrate to Michoacán, Mexico. I’ve had the extreme pleasure of witnessing this extraordinary event the last two years, but with COVID-19 this year I’m not sure if people will be able to visit the butterflies. In the meantime, I came across this fantastic video. Check it out. If you would like to read the full article, you can visit

Dolores Hidalgo

Yesterday Bill and I took the girls, Juliet and Harlee, to Dolores Hidalgo. Dolores Hidalgo is considered a Pueblo Magico and a wonderful town about 40 minutes from San Miguel de Allende. We strolled around the centro and visited some of the gift shops. Bill met couple of Harley guys that were visiting the town from northern Mexico. After touring the park and shops we went to Vicente’s for some
