It is the Little Things

It is the little things that make me love San Miguel de Allende. Simple things. But it makes everything seem right with the world.

Tonight we walked up to Ancha de San Antonio to eat at Los Faroles. Faroles is a tiny place that serves delicious tacos. They open at 7:00 PM....more or less. Usually a little later. When we walked in the waitress smiled and told Ned that tonight they had beans. Of course, they were out of beer but she knew that he also liked the beans and they don't always have them. Between us we had 9 tacos, one bean soup, and 2 sodas. It cost us 90 pesos including a 15% tip.

Just as we finished eating some friends walked by and we talked for a while and caught up on what is happening. They have family coming to San Miguel for Christmas and we are headed to Texas to be with family for Christmas. We wished them Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and promised to get together after the first of the year.

Just as we got home we heard fireworks. We watched them from the terrace.....a castillo and rockets. We could see them really well because they were in front of the San Juan de Dios Mercado. We don't know what the occasion was. But it doesn't make any difference. It is just another one of those little things that bring delight to our daily lives in San Miguel.
