San Miguel de Allende: A Home Base, for Just a Little Longer

As you know, a few months ago Leslie and I bought a lovely house in San Miguel de Allende, 6,000′ above sea level in the high desert north of Mexico City. But don’t let the word desert fool you, though, because it’s really quite tropical here at times, and while the countryside is a little dusty and rife with spectacular cactuses, everywhere I look there is still an enormous amount of color, seen in the palm trees, beautiful flowers and rainbow colored hummingbirds, especially next to our house in our garden, which we aptly named ‘Casa de Los Colibries,’ or ‘House of the Hummingbirds.’

But, while San Miguel is and probably always will be our home base, the time has soon come for us to once more pack up and move on, this time back to Korea, where I will again be teaching ESL. We’re looking forward to going back, as we always enjoy our time in Korea. But, of course, we’re quite sad to leave our lovely new home and friends in magical San Miguel.

To show you what I mean, I’ll drop in a load of photos from our few months here so far, just to give you an idea of why we love it so much.

I think you’ll agree…San Miguel is a special place. Steven Moore Photography San Miguel de Allende Mexico

    What a fantastic variety of colours and scenery, I can see why you don’t want to leave it behind! At least you have the home for keeps!!

      Hi Anna.

      Yes, it is a wonderful place to live. But we’ll be back, and our time in Korea, which we love, will go very quickly.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Thanks Tammy.

      We have bought a house here but we’re returning to Korea for work for at least a year. Will miss those colors, though.

      Cheers.
