Heading South


     We shall be heading down to the Quinta to-morrow.  In all probability, we shall also be taking a bit of a trip over to San Miquel de Allende in a week or so to help our neighbour, the owners of the Hacienda de La Vega, begin the process of opening their new boutique hotel in that noble city.
     It is a six-room, colonial-style, with lots of stone work and points of finery that as of yet we have not seen in person.   For some reason or another the family seems to think that it will not be "real" until I have pronounced it such.  It is quite an undertaking and has been in process for about one year to this point.   Building anything in San Miguel de Allende is a bit of a wonderland due to the conditions concerning building standards and historical melding requirements.

     We should be back around the middle of the month.
