Last night a gal and I shared a taxi home. I was dropped off first. The taxista, seeing my street all torn up, insisted on walking me up one house to the first street light. When I got in, my purse felt light and sure enough I didn’t have my wallet. I cancelled my credit [...]


Editor, Reading the Nov 25 Atencion, specifically the letters to the editor, I must respond to the two US apologists expats on the results of the recent US election. They are free to express their opinions and feelings. As I am. US citizens did not have a clear choice. However, they did avoid having a [...]

Music as Art in San Miguel

By David Ramsey The art of the people in SMA is music. As in other parts of Mexico, it is not painting, literature, or bull fighting. Those expat painters who come here to take classes and paint the colonial buildings and the colorful campesinos may question this assertion, but I think most Mexicans would agree. [...]

Estimada Sra. Noriz,

Estimada Sra. Noriz, Hago referencia al artículo con el encabezado “Donald Trump could be invited to San Miguel”, publicado en su edición del viernes 11 del presente mes. Me permito expresar mi sorpresa por el cambio de posición del ciudadano Alcalde Villarreal, pero también el sentir de una parte considerable de la población residente en [...]

Dear Editor

Dear Editor Please Mr. Mayor, do not invite the president-elect of the United States to San Miguel. Of the gringos living here in this beautiful city, I doubt that many, if any, voted for him. If you want to do something good for the gringos living here, I suggest installing more trash barrels, especially in [...]

I hoped his disparagement of the people of Mexico and others (people of color, Muslims, and women, for example) would cost him enough votes to prevent his election. In fact, his opponent received more [...]

A Celebration at Bellas Artes

A Celebration at Bellas Artes “The kids are here, the kids are here,” the coordinator says. I turn around and look toward the entrance and see that a number of buses have arrived. Children spill out of these buses and form a huge queue at the entrance to Bellas Artes. I can hear their laughter. [...]

Dear Editor

Dear Editor, We have lived here for about 12 years and enjoyed San Miguel and consider it our home. We have never had any problems with security.  On Sunday, October 30, at about 8:30 at night the doorbell started to ring, and we could see though the camera that there where at least four adults [...]

Letters, your voice

Editor, “Most things in life begin with a thought, then the full story and sometimes incredible success come after a lot of hard work. But if you love what you do, then it doesn’t matter and heavy work turns to joy and happiness. That is what the children in five communities believe when they open [...]
