A WINTER BREAK IN SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE
Last winter my wife, Keven, and I discovered the charms of San Miguel de Allende, a colonial Mexican city which is a three hour drive northwest of Mexico City. San Miguel is a town featuring cobblestone streets and very narrow sidewalks. In spite of the fact that there are no stop lights or stop signs, drivers are courteous and rarely use their horns. San Miguel is famous for its Peroquia Church, excellent restaurants, lively cultural scene and colonial architecture recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This winter we travelled with a group of friends and enjoyed a performance of “Rigoletto” at the opera house and a day of food shopping, cooking and eating with Chef Paco. We explored the botanic garden and enjoyed a Brazilian music concert at Bistro Mi Casa. We stayed at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel which is located just a block from the lively flower market.
Here are some photos from our Mexican holiday:
