Panaderia Artisanal San Miguel de Allende

I thought that you might be interested in a few scenes around my temporary home, well temporary until June 1st at least.  My neighborhood is referred to as San Antonio but I don’t know exactly what that means.  I feel a little bit like I did when I first encountered LA and heard about Westwood, Santa Monica, Culver City, Century City, Venice, etc. etc.  I couldn’t figure out what all of those entities were and what they meant and where one neighborhood or city ended and another began.  Well, I am rather like that in San Miguel except of course, San Miguel is much smaller than LA.  I live at the very end, or is it the beginning of Calle San Martin at the corner with Calle Tesoro, just on the very edge of the city proper but I am only about 1.5 km from the city center.  Withing a 5-10 minute walk I have the Bridge Club, at least 10 restaurants, two bakeries, a grocery store with fresh fruits and vegetables, a large market the Mercado Sano which sells all sorts of organic products, a car wash, a veterinarian office, a second-hand furniture store, etc. etc.-just too many to mention and that doesn’t include a few “pop up” places along the way for fresh cooked Mexican food to eat there or things like tamales, rellenos, etc. to take home.  It is a really nice neighborhood and I am enjoying my stay here very much.  It is pretty cool overnight, in the high 40s to low 50s here but in the upper 70s by the afternoon.  At 62000 ft. elevation the humidity is very low so things dry very fast.  Attached are some photos of my neighborhood and coming soon will be some photos inside of the “compound” where I live.  The outside of the compound and a view up Calle San Martin are shown in the last couple of photos.

I am a 77 year old neurosurgeon who has had the "travel bug" for the past 36 years and who has been interested in photography as long as I can remember. My site is intended to convey the excitement that I feel when I travel, to my viewers in words and pictures. I also hope to provide my viewers with my recommendations for places to visit, places to stay, where to eat and generally my recommendations "if you go!"
