We flew out of Boston early on the morning of 15 November 2021 headed for San Miguel de Allende, it is exactly one year since we embarked on this same trip which ended when Jim had an acute ST elevation myocardial infarction on November 25. It has been a long and eventful year, some of which has been documented in prior blogs. We are very happy to be returning to San Miguel as we feel that we have a lot of unfinished business here. This is a much smaller city than we are used to with less culture, museums, cinemas concerts etc, and unfortunately for us there is much less walking and running opportunities as this is a hilly cobblestoned colonial city with very narrow sidewalks. We plan on doing much more reading, puzzles (crossword & jigsaw), TV and movie binging and working out. SMA also abounds with good restaurants, a lot of which are very inexpensive. We also have our good friends Miguel Kelley and Ivonne Ruiz who we plan to hang out with and we have a four bedroom villa so our friends and family will come to visit. Mexico is doing much better than the US with covid. Most people on the streets are wearing masks and it is mandatory indoors.

We are fairly wide open. We have plenty of room from now until 22 December when we go to Oaxaca for Christmas with our daughter Emily and boyfriend. We are then open from 26 December until 10 January. Open again from 15 January to 26 January. February is mostly open with a few unknowns but just book it and we will make it work. We would love to have all of you here.
The accomodations are lovely. It looks quaint and beautiful and sounds like you have plans on how to spend your time. I wish you a very Merry Christmas, peace and good health during your stay there in Mexico and in the coming year.
