    RV Park Living in San Miguel de Allende, Trolley Tour of the City, and Hiking the Botanical Garden
    We finally got to go on the Trolley Tour of San Miguel de Allende! On our third attempt, we arrived early enough to purchase a ticket before they sold out. We had to settle for a Spanish-only tour as there is only one bilingual tour per day in July, but it was fine. It was actually good practice for me to learn to hear Spanish and Jon could interpret most of the information that I couldn’t understand.

    Portals, part of the identity of a town
    Sureste.- portals Southeast have given shelter to its inhabitants and visitors. These emerged to offer consumers a comfortable place where they could sit, protect themselves from the sun and rain and do their shopping.

    The archaeologist and restaurateur, Leonardo Amezcua Ornelas, said the portals are part of the identity of a town. He added that in the south all cities retain their portals including Moroleón, Uriangato and Salvatierra.

    Flood of 1973: a 'rescued' tragedy
    Irapuato.- The flood of Irapuato in 1973 cannot be remembered without the man who was key for all of Mexico to know about the tragedy that marked the lives of the Irapuatenses.

    That man was Roberto Domínguez Herrera, who at 93 years old remembers that at that time he just formed the Civil Protection unit in Irapuato with eight elements in total, who during the flood had to work without knowing for sure what to do to help as many people as possible.

    Yucatan Green Gold Era
    Sotuta de Peón, once one of the largest hacienda plantations for the production of natural fiber rope, was established in the 1800s just outside of Merida, Mexico. This is where henequen, or Green Gold, was produced from the fiber of agave plants and woven into rope.

    The decline of this industry was caused by the increase in popularity of synthetic materials for rope making after WWII. Today, Sotuta de Peón is a living museum having been restored from its abandoned state over 25 years ago.

    Waiter, there's a crab in my hubris
    I should know better.

    Actually, I do know better -- but I go ahead and do it any way.

    Basking in hubris may feel good. But it always comes with a price. And, for a writer, there is no escaping the checkout counter.

    Last Saturday, in crabby on the half shell, I related a tale of how certain portions of town are in the midst of crab migration season. If you live in their path, it is a bit like being a spear carrier in a Cecil B. DeMille Bible epic. I think the plague of crabs was somewhere between the frogs and the flies.
