Back to the vacation slide show--well, hopefully, a little more inspiring than that.
San Miguel de Allende--sigh. I fell in love with the idea of San Miguel when I first discovered Mary Ann's blog a couple of years ago after she spent the summer there learning Spanish. Having only experienced border towns, I never imagined Mexico could be so beautiful. From the first moment I stepped foot there myself, I fell in love with the city for real. How could you not?
Like Guanajuato, San Miguel is a colonial city. Richly ornate architecture, jewel-toned buildings, grand entrance ways, and dreamlike courtyards. Guanajuato is a university town, but San Miguel has the thriving arts community and is considered the safest city in Mexico. Both are clean, bustling with life, and have a very European feel to them, yet at the same time, retaining the unique culture and beauty of Mexico.
