Today's post will cover our first two days of strolls in no particular order. This city is so photogenic we can't stand it. There is a photo opportunity around every corner.
Click here for more photos.
In the Centro there are no fast food chains or big name stores and no flashy signs. OXXO, a Mexican 7/11 has small discreet logos. There is a Burger King near our house but the sign is so tasteful, no neon. There are also big malls around the town where you can shop the brand names to your heart's content. Not my kind of shopping.
This is my kind.
Walking is undoubtedly the best way to explore San Miguel.
Let me clarify a few things about walking in this town.
Don't wear your fancy ballet slippers to dinner, the cobblestones will kill you!
Watch where you walk! There are cobblestones on the streets and the sidewalks sometimes have slate which can be very slippery.
It is a very hilly town!!
There are holes in the sidewalks.
There are steps that require you to go up and down as you traverse the sidewalk.
Other than that it is a really great walking town.
Excuse John's knee as he tries to snap this. The donkey takes a shine to him and insists on having his head scratched.
See what I mean? Hilly!!!
Love this photo!

The building in the first couple of shots really catches my eye- and so do those day of the dead like paintings.ReplyDelete
Character in spades, hasn't it? :) I've seen it on other blogs (Gallivant, I think?) and it does look pretty.ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot for the share, Jackie :)
wonderful photos! when i was a kid (i'm from san diego) we'd go down to tijuana a lot (didn't need a passport then) and they'd paint the donkeys like zebras and people would get photographed on them...we have a few of those!ReplyDelete
Been a long time since we were there - brought back wonderful (and colorful) memories!ReplyDelete
A very fascinating town, something for everyone. Love the unusual artwork at the top on the street corner.ReplyDelete
