I enjoyed my last night in Guanajuato with (from right to left) Jona, the nephew of Paradiso Perduto‘s owner Francisco, and his friends Maya and Takumi.
The wonderful Paradiso Perduto family, with Francisco and his wife Elena at the center, gave me two pomegranates as a parting gift.
We found a place to stay at San Miguel RV Park and Tennis Courts, located near San Miguel’s beautiful–and World Heritage Site-protected–old town. Our neighbors are, from left to right: Joachim and his wife from PanamericanaInfo, a couple from North Dakota, (la bestia), two Canadian couples and–already on the road for fifteen years–Barbara and Uli from Oldenburg. We like it so much here that we are going to stay for a full week (MXP1,680).
Almost a ghost town less than a hundred years ago, San Miguel de Allende was “rediscovered” by artists, both local and foreign, during the 1950s and 1960s. According to Wikipedia, its main church–La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel–boasts a stunning neo-gothic facade and ranks among the most photographed churches in Mexico.
