San Miguel de Allende - Part 1

Last weekend we decided on a study/routine- break and went away to San Miguel de Allende in the state of Guanajuato. The drive from Guadalajara took about 5 hours (could have been 4 without long stops and traffic). Just in time for our one longer stop, we happened upon a Pemex (gas station) with a perfect little patch of grass for Little N to get out and play. All in all, it was a decent (yet expensive) toll road the whole way, and other than a couple missed turn offs due to late signs we made it without a hitch.

San Miguel de Allende is known for being a picturesque colonial town in central Mexico, home to many ex-patriot American and Canadian retirees. Our timing was a bit off with Friday night festivities closing off some of the one-way cobble stone streets. Without a map of the town it took us quite a while to navigate towards our hotel, but we made it! We couldn't go to bed without seeing something, so we had a late dinner keeping Little N up way past his bedtime. He was happy to entertain the local gringo residents that were out and about on the town and we were excited for the weekend to come.
