Hola!We are in Mexico.We arrived last night and took a long, bumpy taxi ride to our little bed and breakfast in the city of San Miguel de Allende. It’s located about three hours northwest of Mexico city and full of charming scenery and architecture.So much color.Our bed and breakfast is equally wonderful. It’s a revamped church that’s full of vibrant art and funky furniture.The view isn’t so bad, either.We kicked off our first night at a little family-run restaurant near the town square. We met the family’s dad and many of his sons throughout the night! They had fun practicing their English with us while I worked on my Spanish.
Luckily “margarita” is a universal word.We started off with a “light” round of chips and salsa…Then went for fajitas and arrancha (grilled flank steak). Pretty good way to kick off a honeymoon if you ask me.
Plus a run this morning!The rocky, windy, and narrow streets aren’t exactly ideal for jogging, so after a mile or so outside we headed to a gym where, per our one-day contract, no jokes are allowed.I kicked it on the treadmill while my husband lifted weights with the locals.Then we checked out a nearby supermarket. I love looking at different foods and comparing prices in different cities! The highlight of the trip was seeing a half-mile long aisle dedicated completely to rice and beans.What, you don’t go on a grocery store tour when you’re vacationing? Hmpf.
Have a great day!
