I'm a Salsa Teacher/Social Coordinator/Realtor from Bend, Oregon, and I now get to live in San Miguel de Allende - one of the most beautiful cities in the world (along with Bend). I'm a traveler and a forever-learner, and I love meeting people. My mother and I used to have a Bed & Breakfast so I've always enjoyed having friends around.
If you want a San Miguel tour guide, I'm your girl; I love showing off the city. I write the Happy Hour and Music page for a local online event calendar, so I can tell you the best place for a glass of wine at sunset, the best homemade tequila, the popular gringo place to meet people, or the best authentic Mexican cantina. And of course, the best taco stands.
If I had to make a list of my favorite places in the world, it would include Petra (Jordan), Monemvasia (Greece), San Gimignano (Italy), Bocas del Toro (Panama), the Dra'a Valley (Morocco)... There are amazing people and places everywhere.
I'm glad you're planning to visit San Miguel. It really is one of my favorite places in the world. I look forward to meeting you! :-)
(NOTE: I will be in the States from December 13 - Jan 7 so unfortunately I won't get to meet you while you're here.)
