Since Jan 2006


San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Lifelong writer and world traveler, moved from Minneapolis to Mexico in 2008 and am loving it here! I've had fabulous, memorable experiences in the most rustic of accommodations (a yurt in China where I doubt they've ever washed the blankets and pillows, and where the pet goat slept inside with us--but the people were amazing and it was such a great adventure), and I've had horrible, never-again experiences in the best 5-star hotels (like the one in NYC where the maid stole my new $300 shoes, still in the box, and the manager refused to take my accusation seriously even though the room had security cameras). I expect to get what I pay for, and mostly I'm happy wherever I stay--from tents to B&Bs to exotic resorts (yes, I do treat myself on occasion). Right now in Mexico my standard of living is low on the scale of material wealth and conveniences but high on the scale of joyful daily occurrences and sunshine. I am happy to help anyone with information about San Miguel de Allende!!
