Starbucks

The town has been abuzz (an understatement) about the opening of Starbucks on one of the many corners near the jardine! Wow, the civilist was aflame with information about a protest march (this civilist is read mostly by ex-pats) and how our town is going to be ruined and if there weren't so many Americans and Canadians here there wouldn't be a Starbucks. Never mind that there are SEVEN in Queretaro and very few ex-pats, very few. NOW the news is that Starbucks is going into Tampico. Good Lord, there are NO Americans that I have EVER seen there!
So, for all the "entitled" Americans who think everything in San Miguel is for and because of them, rethink. It really is for and wanted by the citizens of Mexico!
Oh and by the way, for those of you who are NOT in San Miguel, only 25 people showed up for the protest so in truth, very few people really cared...............
It was MUCH ado about nothing!

Right on, Girl! Some of the gringos here really think that the world revolves around them. One of these days when I'm in Centro, I'll test the Mocha Frapachino and see if it is as good as the ones in Texas.

I HATE to admit it but I haven't been in since it opened. Our "coffee klatch" group meets on the opposite corner on Monday mornings........a iced cappuchino is 22 pesos.........I'll have to check out Starbuck's, I promise!
