San Miguel Through AJ's Lens


Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you are having a good week.  This post is Part 2 of our Christmas holiday.  Adorable Jonathon is the man behind the lens.  When he sent me his photos, I thought that they caught the flavor of San Miguel and deserved a post of their own.  I added some commentary and also a few articles of interest.  

If you missed Part 1, you can find it here.

Expats plus foreigners make up ten percent of the population of 140,000.

San Miguel is known for its beautiful doors as well as the doorknockers.

I found that the majority of the natives wore masks outside as well as inside.

San Miguel is a 4-hour drive from Mexico City.  We flew into Queretaro International Airport, which is over an hour away.  It is the cleanest, most organized airport that I have ever been in.  An added bonus is that it is a 2-hour flight from Dallas.

Here's another article about the many doors of San Miguel. 

If you prefer to stay in the heart of San Miguel, this is a beautiful alternative.

San Miguel is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  It is mandated that homes, churches, businesses - every original structure retain its original historic appearance.  

Every time I look at this door, I think of sprinkles or jimmies.

The elevation of SM is 6234'.

Here is the lowdown on SM according to Travel and Leisure.

Looking to buy a second or third house?

And if you really love San Miguel, here is the cost of building a house.

Last but not least, AJ found this little gem for me. 
The first thing that I have to do when I revisit SM is to find a big enough bag to carry it.

Thank you, Adorable Jonathon, for sharing your beautiful photos. 
Stay tuned for the last chapter on Friday. 

Until next time...

  15. A few months ago, I felt so depressed, I got frustrated with bad credits, but then I contacted HACK VANISH by phone: +1 (747) 293-8514 and email: HACK VANISH (@) GMAIL. COM. I found out about hack vanish services through positive reviews read on some credit blogs, in a blink of an eye this great hacker restored my credit score from 509 to 784 in all 3 major credit bureaus, they got removed evictions and foreclosures, my LexisNexis and Chex system was repaired respectively, a few days later I received an email confirming the approval of my mortgage loan, it was quite surprising because I never thought it was possible. Today, I can confidently say that 2021 was a banner year for my husband and I as we now own a new house and a new SUV courtesy of HACK VANISH, I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a genuine Hacker.
