Dear Editor

I thank Jesús Aguado for his informative and relevant articles that help make San Miguel de Allende a more livable place during this boom in tourism.

As an old-timer here in San Miguel, I, too, enjoyed the arrival of the first air balloons here in our once-little pueblo. Years ago, we never considered flying in town and stayed mostly in the country. Having a fear of heights, I must confess it took a lot for me to get into one, but my husband was thrilled to be able to fly within touching distance of small capillas in the countryside.

Our elation quickly turned to horror as we glided over farms, seeing horses, cows, and goats panic, jumping over fences and destroying their enclosures. We raised ostriches at the time, and one of our females completely stopped laying, she was so traumatized by the sight and sound of this strange and colorful beast from the sky.

As San Miguel grapples with this phenomenon, I sincerely hope Civil Protection takes into account the oft overlooked farmers who depend on the health and contentment of their livestock and chickens, which are far more traumatized and which possess far less recourse than the citizens of San Miguel.

 

Thank you

Michele Connor
