* Christmas in San Miguel ..

It was a glorious morning in San Miguel.  I sat in my favorite restaurant overlooking the Jardin, enjoying the Mexican sun as it warmed my shoulders. Sipping on a capuccino with a double shot of espresso I watched the world go by.  It felt very good.  Very very good.

San Miguel is not dressed to the nines this Christmas like she was last year.  There is no huge tree in the Jardin and not near as many poinsettia's.  No live animals or in fact a creche set up.  Must have been heavy budget cuts somewhere.  Like most places in the world, San Miguel is suffering in these economic times.  Still, as I said it was a beautiful day and I did enjoy walking with my camera capturing a little of the atmosphere of Christmas.

Thanks for having a lookie loo --- take care.  xxoo  Donna

For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home.

  4. WHAT A GIFT! It is so much fun to view your world through your photos, Donna; and I am extremely happy you went to centro for the day. I never tire looking at the cathedral or the plazas and even though they aren't as festive as a year ago, they still are gorgeous with the red poinsettias and especially the angel photo. I love angels!
