This is a recent hike I did to the Pena de Bernal, the 3rd highest monolith in the world
Having traveled extensively, I can say firsthand that San Miguel de Allende is a most special place in the world. This magical town is a UNESCO world heritage site and is a colonial jewel like I have not seen before. The air is fresh and the lighting incredible with the surrounding mountains that fade into the vast expanse of sky. The diversity of it’s people mixes with the history and it’s like a snapshot in time. I love walking through the cobblestone streets and taking in all that this colonial town has to offer: the colorfully painted buildings, the bougainvilla, the old iron railings, the enormous wooden doors where you’ll find mystery behind each one.
I especially love the lack of cameras posted on traffic lights – we have no traffic lights, and few stop signs.
I love the lack of police lurking everywhere, waiting to trap you for any misstep.
I love how the local people are so gentle and polite and so good and patient with their children, who never scream or whine.
I love the art, the culture, the relatively inexpensive cost of living. I love the food and the local markets.
I love the scenery and the open spaces and I love the hikes and the nature that I have been discovering.
I love how happy I am here and I love all my friends who embrace and support me.
