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 [...]

Dear Editor:

parteras con mama

During February and March, the CASA midwives are offering free birth assistance to a total of 90 women. This offer is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we urge all women with due dates in March who still would like to have a midwife assist them with their birth to immediately call Alejandra at the [...]

Dear Editor:

LETT DANZON

Our event, “El Danzón y Otros Ritmos Bailables,” on Feb 3, 2019, in the Plaza Cívica, was a huge success. We hope to do this the first Sunday of every month.

Changes that Did Cool the Climate in San Miguel

Mr Hertz’s previous letter suggesting that parking on Cardo might help solve the climate change problem and rid San Miguel de Allende of its oppressive traffic caused me to review past occurrences that actually DID cool the climate (oppressive traffic elimination varying by definition of the time). Genghis Khan has been branded the greenest invader [...]

Doing Something about Climate Change in San Miguel

Sitting around the conference room at Quinto Loreto after screening a disturbing film about climate change offered by Occupy San Miguel, our shared question was what can be done about it here, in our town. I kept pondering this question throughout the rest of the day. By dinner time, the answer was evident to me: [...]

Dear Editor:

Despite all of the rhetoric about a moratorium on construction and illegal construction in San Miguel de Allende, construction, especially illegal construction, continues unabated. Over the past five months, I have personally reported construction of three buildings without construction permits to the Dirección de Desarrollo Urbano y Ordenamiento Territorial. With each report I provided pictures [...]

Dear Editor:

On Thursday, January 3, two men posing as maintenance workers in the men’s washroom at La Comer robbed me of a significant amount of money. They used the old trick of splashing sauce on my shirt and then solicitously helping me to clean up. Much to my embarrassment, I did not suspect foul play. My [...]

LETT THREE KINGS IMG_1185

On Friday, January 4, a convoy of nine cars went out to five schools in the campo and made the day of over 750 children a little brighter for Three Kings Day! None of this could have happened without the overwhelming support of this wonderful community and supporters from overseas. The donations were truly amazing [...]

Why We Lend Our Home to the House and Garden Tour

Before we moved to San Miguel de Allende, during our early explorations, we discovered the Biblioteca and what a fabulous asset it is for the community. After we bought our home in 2014, a friend who volunteers with the tour suggested that we consider lending it. He said the tour was always looking for interesting [...]

Dear Editor:

The mayor and all of his administration are to be applauded for the initiation of the new police unit the Policía Rosa, to give specialized attention to female victims of violence. The Municipal Institute for Women, already in operation with its attorney, social worker, and psychologist, is also providing critical support for this most dangerous [...]
