The main church in San Miguel is certainly impressive!
San Miguel has a population of around 60,000, but the main difference with this town is that about 7,000 of those people are Canadian and American expats. That makes it quite a bit different here than in more traditional Mexican communities. We have to come right out and say that if we were to move to Mexico (very possible at some point) it would not be to an area with a lot of expats. Probably more because we are "frugal" and that number of expats cause local pricing for just about everything to increase. But also because if we were to live in Mexico, we would like to do so as a Mexican...not as a Canadian living in Mexico. Not sure how else to explain our thinking on this, but maybe we'll write more about it another day.
Quite a few churches in San Miguel, and we like to explore that part of the local architecture.
We did a lot of walking today, and had left Whiskey behind with Sherman. San Miguel is at 6,400 feet altitude, so daytime highs are around 25C (77F) which is perfect. But still, we were concerned about leaving Whiskey alone, so we headed back to the motorhome around 1:30pm. Turned out she was fine, and the temperature inside Sherman was about what it was outside.
This washing area is still used by some of the local ladies who come here to do their laundry. Nobody was using it today, but Ruth would have if we would have been closer!
Here is where we are right now! Pretty much the center of Mexico!
