San Miguel de Allende

Posted 7 months ago in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

After the hustle and bustle of Mexico City, we headed a few hours away to San Miguel de Allende, which is a 500-year-old town filled with cobbled streets, 2-storey houses and beautiful churches.

We enrolled the girls into another school, and Nelly even got her first school uniform! Life has settled into a simple routine now with school in the mornings, siestas in the afternoons and visits to the town square most evenings (along with the rest of the town) once the heat dies down.

The only annoyance is the Mexicans' love of fiestas and fireworks - the novelty definitely wears off at 6am on a Sunday!
