This time of the year it feels like all roads lead to San Miguel.
All those friends I've been wanting to see are all coming in the next month or two. They are coming from all directions - Texas, California, Melaque, and more Texans. I'm thrilled of course.
I've finished the successful garage sale. I got the new refrigerator. Both houses are spic and span. The gardens have been fed, pruned and are glorioiusly green.
I'm looking forward to having time to sit on the roof terrace or the chaise outside my bedroom. I love this view. It is a jungle out there now.
The first guest arrives tomorrow. Followed a week later by another and more. Whoo hoo, it's going to be a hot time in the old town for a couple of months.
It's fun to have new guests who haven't been here. I love to take them to Atotonilco to see the church that is a UN World Heritage site. It is referred to as the "Sistine Chapel" of Mexico. Then on the way back I always want to drive down the dirt road to show them Timmyland. A surreal site if ever there was one. Evenyone enjoys this fantasy land.
Other fun things to do are the walking tour in San Miguel which benefits a charity that provides medical and dental care for children. Then the Toy Museum, which is new. The Mask Museum which is world class up by me. Add to that all the magnificent churches, shopping (If that is your bag) and just hanging out. My favorite thing to do.
Time flies when company is here. So much to do, so little time!
