Cerveza de San Miguel

If you need a brewpub beer in San Miguel this is the place. We stopped by for a few on our way back from Dolores Hidalgo. Went again later one evening because we heard there was music. A lighting storm took out the power 3 times so out came the candles, the music became acoustic while they ran to flip the breakers back on. Good pizza and Pale Ale but not up to Seattle brewpub standards. Something different

Street scenes of San Miguel

San Miguel is definitely a walking town in El Centro where the Colonial construction is preserved. I stayed with Ron and Dora who live across from Mercado San Juan de Dios about 8 blocks from the center of town (toward the bus station). Most of the downtown area is pretty flat and I wasn't interested in walking the hills to the south despite the views

Lots of flowery prose written about San Miguel on tourist sites but it's not that different from other mature Mexican cities although maybe a little more condensed. Lots of shops to stick your head into and reminded me a bit of Tlaquepaque. Did I say a bit yuppy

Upstairs patio in the San Miguel Library

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
