This Weekend in the Jardin

Both Valentine’s Day and Carnaval were celebrated on Saturday and Sunday in the center of San Miguel this weekend, drawing lots of tourists from surrounding regions of Mexico.  The Jardin was packed with people and hearts, flowers, and mariachis were in abundance for the lovers while the kids celebrated Carnaval by smashing eggshells filled with confetti on each other’s heads.

(Notice people wearing jackets – it’s been cold this week.)

    Hi Joan,

    It is so refreshing to see color. Everywhere here is white, gray or black. The light at night over all that snow is luminous however, enjoyable when it is not windy.

    Best, Brooke
