As I looked at the webcam yesterday, I noticed fewer people in the jardin. Still there were families taking photos in front of the tree with the Parroquia in the background. However, it was NOT wall to wall people, anymore.
Today when I looked at the webcam before I left the house, I noticed that the fence was no longer around the tree along with all the decorations that had been on the ground. The big mojigangas (large walking creatures with a person inside) were no longer in attendance either.
Progress is being made to return the town to tranquility and serenity.
The tourists have, for the most part, left. The kids all return to school tomorrow. The streets are passable again. Even the "round about" or glorieta, as we call it, was not backed up with cars trying to circle to exit onto another road. It has been a "keystone cop" operation for the last three weeks.
Hopefully by this time next year the current administration will have figured out a way to handle all the traffic and people in a different manner so that the quality of life is maintained.
It certainly didn't seem like San Miguel. It seemed more like Grand Central Station this season.
IF you want to keep up with the shenanigans of San Miguel or just to see all that goes on from dawn to dark, from the comfort of wherever you are, just put Live Webcam in San Miguel de Allende in your Search Engine. The website will come up. You can bookmark it and watch in amazement at the pigeons and the people along with all the other activities that make life in Mexico so surreal.
