We’ve bid a fond Adios to Mexico and have returned to the US. In our time there, we visited three beautiful, Spanish Colonial cities in the Central Highlands: San Miguel de Allende, Morelia, and Guanajuato.
Each city showcased fine examples of Colonial architecture, in a surprising variety of styles. Additionally, the cities have their own distinct character and feel. In retrospect, we realize that these marked differences were one of the highlights of the trip. And like many other places we’ve visited – it’s all in the details.
San Miguel’s rainbow of colors and unique architectural accents made every street a photographer’s dream. And you never knew what you’d see when you looked up!
Morelia’s natural, masonry walls and intricately-carved stone buildings showed that Mother Nature can flash pretty petticoats as well, and wrought iron gates and benches added lacy accents.
Guanajuato’s inviting balconies made perfect, cozy nests to watch the world stroll by.
And the abundance of beautiful handicrafts and a church around every corner, made every street more interesting than the last.
We’ve never been punch-list travelers. Our philosophy has been that we see what we see, and it’s always about quality over quantity. Small details make cities unique, and for us, they’re one of the joys of travel.
Hasta luego Mexico. It’s been great, and we’ll be back.
