On Friday, for lunch, a group of us gathered at Nectar on Correo, inside Camino Silvestre'. After having had lunch there the week before and been duly impressed, when everyone wanted to know where to go,
I suggested Nectar. It is in a little courtyard with hummingbirds zipping from hummingbird feeder to hummingbird feeder. Quite an enchanting experience. Camino Silvestre' sells decorative hummingbird feeders worldwide, wholesale and retail.
Not only was the food delicious, but the friends and conversation were magnificent.
Identifying left to right, Angie, who has lived in San Miguel for 20 years. She came from Haiti prior to that and is an artist of international repute. Jennifer who now lives in Seoul, South Korea but still owns a house here in San Miguel. Carolyn who has a place here, but also a home in Nashville, Tenn where she comes from. Carolyn had an antique mall in Nashville for a very long time. Here in San Miguel she handles estate sales and just enjoys life. Lastly is me with that happy and grateful expression to be part of the group.
Conversation centered around Jennifer as she left on Saturday to return to Seoul. It was fascinating to hear about South Korea, their customs, culture, business climate and the fact that there are 25 million people in Seoul! Who knew? Prior to being involved with a treaty group of 38 countries in Seoul, Jennifer was in Mongolia with Mercy Corp. As we all sat and talked, it occurred to me that at Jennifer's age, 52, the life experiences and opportunities she has experienced would not have been imaginable to my generation in the 60's or 70's. How wonderful that she is having these amazing career opportunities and life experiences.
In addition, the fact that I know so many interesting, intriguing people here in San Miguel certainly livens up
my life. What a life!
