On Monday, while at our coffee group's weekly gathering, I was able to get a few interesting photos now that my camera has a new battery!
It wasn't til I downloaded the photos that I saw the absolute contrast between the two things that I photographed.
This photo of her, to me, is a sobering photo anytime, but especially at this time of year.
Then, something hilariously funny, to me, happened. I looked up and saw this. The caption should be,
How Do You Move Furniture From One Restaurant To Another in San Miguel de Allende? Yup, that is what this is.
But, I digress. At first I saw one person carrying the fuscia colored equipale chairs to the new location. And, eventually they had a dolly to carry several at one time. This went on for quite a while. I think it emphasizes that we are still a small village that figures out how to get things done without all the 21st century amenities. I treasure that.
My Monday morning was sobering, but then hilariously funny. I treasure that as well.
I love the little old indigenous women there! I too always want to interview
them and find out about their lives. Excited to hear about the new restaurant!
Popping in to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. Thank you for another year of wonderful posts and photos!
Hi Babs! Just found your blog in my researching of San Miguel. Would it be possible for me to email you with some questions? If so, would you mind sharing that contact info with me here? I can't seem to find a way to email you from your blog. Thanks!!
There are certainly some hard luck stories out there in Mexico. That woman looks like she has to work *very* hard to stay afloat. It's a good reminder of how lucky all we gringos are.
Saludos y feliz Navidad,

Where we just had a lovely Christmas eve dinner with family.
I just love making a big mess in your kitchen. This year's Christmas dinner was one of our favourites.
Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.
