Dear Editor

As the height of the tourist season approaches, the Children’s Art Foundation (CAF), a locally registered NGO needs an “ambassador” to meet visitors and introduce them to the ten-year old  Literacy Through Art Program. This is a part-time, volunteer position to inform potential donors and volunteers about CAF. What a wonderful way to get involved [...]

Condescending and Patronizing on La Presa

Beldon Butterfield You should have seen a fisherman’s look after I told him how Amigos de La Presa is keeping the shoreline clean. “Never heard of them,” he answered. “We do our own cleanup.” “If you are going to be on the Presa, you, like members of Amigos de La Presa, should participate in picking up the [...]

Over 1,000 Pet Sterilizations Planned in Next 12-Month Period As a follow-up to an article published in Atención on July 20, 2018, and based on financial support received from friends and animal lovers in San Miguel de Allende, my wife, Kiran, and I will be launching our second annual plan to sterilize 1,200 dogs and [...]

Biblioteca Art Project Moves Forward in July with the Help of Volunteers

Patrick Malone, 13, of Prairieville, LA, spent two of his summer vacation days in San Miguel de Allende, climbing an aluminum ladder in the Biblioteca and helping relocate paintings. Patrick also used his computer skills to create a template that the Biblioteca is using to make identification plates to be displayed with each work of [...]

Dear Editor: By W. Peters

I write to respond to the article about tourism in the July 27 addition of Atención. I am completely enraged by the attitude and arrogance of the officials who were interviewed. They advocate more tourism for the wealthy and seem to disparage the “uncontrollable street vendors” who are just trying to make a little money, [...]

Dear Editor: By Paula Greene

At 2am on the morning of July 31, a water leak (fuga) streamed down our steep Centro street for seven hours. I awoke early to a flooded room and spent hours diverting the flow of water to a bathroom drain. By 9:30am, the leak was fixed by SAPASMA, and those doing the cable work dealt [...]

Dear Editor:

I could not agree more with the thoughtful letter from C Joubert in a recent Atención re: high-density housing development in San Miguel de Allende. In my twenty-five years of full-time residence here, without a car, my wife and I have watched this city grow crazily from a delightful low-traffic haven to a bumper-to-bumper nightmare, [...]

Dear Editor

My husband, Morgan Gilbert, took this photograph at about 7am, June 18, 2018, from our bedroom on Cielito Lindo in colonial Guadalupe, and I thought it might be of possible interest to you. We bought our house here two decades ago and have watched as the “family” of this unusual cactus, thriving in the garden [...]

Dear Editor:

It has come to my attention that there are seven high-density developments in progress (one completed) around San Miguel de Allende, all by the same developer. They are all massive structures of condos, apartments, townhomes and are totally out of sync with the landscape of the town and surrounds, as they dominate the vistas, and [...]
