So I´ve been painting from fotos I took just before the rain came.
This place , San Miguel de Allende, is crawling with U.S. expats , who have left the good old US for calmer, more peaceful vibes………. and they have found it here. Thats for sure. Very happy, friendly people and a strong sense of comunity. Smiles everywhere! I am looking to get some nice work done here. This is the town where the move to independance from Spain started, and that is still the feeling here….. live and let live.
Yesterday I saw a pack train of burros walking up the middle of a cobble stone street, about seven in a row. All piled high with fire wood. The herder was going door to door selling it .. When a V W bug came up the street, the herder made them get squeeze up on the very narrow side walk, and they all did it, with a little protest. BUT…….today is sunny and nice , so the brushes call, with some help from the Margaritas. I hear it’s snowing up there, lo siento.
