After bidding farewell to Warren’s sister’s family and the parentals in Mexico City, we headed up to San Miguel de Allende via luxury bus. SMA boasts beautiful architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries, a plethora of contemporary artists plying their trade, and Warren’s uncle and aunt! Phil and Pat are spending the winter there so it was a great chance to continue the family reunion whilst also continuing to consume the awesome food, culture, food, weather, and food of this fantabulous country.
Phil met us for a late meal and enchanted The Eldest with stories of old Mexico.
The next day we headed for the Tianguis market so Phil could give us a tour of all the tchotchkes. Instead he just introduced us to mamey, a fruit which he described as halfway between a banana and a sweet potato. Or was is a pineapple and a regular potato. Regardless, it tasted like chicken.
The town was as stunning as everyone said, with amazing views, great food, random celebrities, and a chill vibe.
One mellow visit we made in San Miguel was to the toy museum, which houses handmade fun from across the country.
We also had some adventurously active adventures in SMA, but to peek at those you'll have to wait until the next post...
