San Miguel de Allende 2009

Wow, what a day! We have been on the go touring the town and visiting all the hot spots. In addition, we have spent everyday looking at new houses for sale. Almost all are in gated-communities and are reasonably priced. Always looking for an investment. As you can guess, we like SMA and it looks like a great place to use as a summer base to escape the heat in Monterrey.

The cathedral in the main plaza, SMA.

The main plaza where a lot of people meet for lunch, coffee, or drinks in the evening.

I doubt we will ever be fulltimers although the idea still sits heavily in the back of my mind. Always looking for a new sunrise and spending the evenings viewing a new sunset and its surroundings.

We walked quite a bit around the downtown area. SMA is not quite as nice as Dolores Hidalgo but they both have their advantages and disadvantages. Dolores Hidalgo is a smaller town, has less tourists and is much quieter. SMA on the other hand has a large gringo community that is active in the city and in projects that are community based. SMA has a great night life, lots of cultural activities and events.

Incredible architecture.

With us, you can never tell what will happen but I am sure we will be back. I find it hard moving back to the states, much less for the summer months heading to the north states or Canada.

  1. Hay Chris, did you get a chance to visit the wine area near Ensenada? If you did, how about a post on it?
