Lost and Found in SMA is one of the best videos I have seen . Before moving down to SMA I had to sell my house in Vancouver. Unfortunately I had a quick sale but a long closing( 4mos). I watched the video daily just to reassure myself that I was really going to make it. I never tired of watching it and although I live here I watch it now and again as it is really interesting to see the city through someone elses eyes and to have a good laugh.

Just returned from our vacation in San Miguel. we met Wendy Moyer and her husband Paul.
Wendy marched us up hill and down, and wore me out, but I have managed to live and tell the tale.
I bought a pair of San Miguel sandals and wore them the entire time i was in SMA and Guadalajara.
We were honored to be guests in Wendy and Paul's home. It is a lovely, modern home built of poured mud...doesn't look like mud, you have to see it to understand.
It is thoughtfully designed, and uses green principles throughout.
Wendy's fiber arts are stunning, I was impressed and humbled by her work.
We enjoyed our visit to SMA, and Wendy's suggestions on where to go and where to eat were invaluable.

Muy bien, so no one there to wish back?
Is it very hot in San Miguel?...I am longing for some hot weather..
and if as hot as SMA, I would need a pool by my side.
I love swimming, problem is now that I got used to having hot springs...!!!
All pools are cold and the clorox its difficult..
We are so lucky with the

Funny coincidence that you ask about the shoes. I am just about to add a page to my website about San Miguel Shoes -- the "cocktail combat sandals" They are wonderful. Pretty and comfortable, too, and I have terrible feet (almost impossible to find shoes that don't hurt) so this is a true miracle for me.

I should have the page up tonight, but when you get to SMA, you'll see them in several stores. The best is on Reloj, first block, midway, on the right going downhill from the Jardin. Dona Martha, whose husband invented the shoes (for her and with her ideas) is almost always there, perfectly made up and coiffed and usually wearing a big hat, smiling and saying "Que linda!" to everyone and everything. She's a true piece of SMA.
