Arriving in San Miguel de Allende

The Latin America Adventure is on! The flight was non-eventful and arrived just in time which is always a good sign. On the 1.5hr drive from Leon to San Miguel I met a wonderful pair of ladies from Canada, Sandra and Audrina. We ended up having a very interesting conversation about healthcare and the future of America. Turns out Canadians are worried about America too! After a lengthy discussion we turned our attention to the fact that we were in San Miguel one of the most beautiful and picturesque towns in all of Mexico.

One of my favorite spots is the terrace of our house where we have awesome views of the whole town. Here you can see the
Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel. The parish church is the city's most representative building with a pink stone facade and neogothic style built in the 1800's.

Later in the day I made my way to the farmers market...all I can say is delicious! Fresh fruit, friendly people and cheap! an 8oz cup of pomegranate seeds goes for about $0.75 - unbelievable!

the colors are so vibrant and the fruit so sweet

All in all a fun filled day :)
