For a change, we had quite a low key month. We took a break from house sitting to enjoy a couple of weeks in a lovely new AirBnB apartment in Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s west coast.
From there we took a bus to Guadalajara, where we spent two nights, allowing us to explore the trendy centre of Tlaquepaque, filled with galleries, museums, restaurants and bars (see feature image).
One more bus journey brought us “full circle” back to San Miguel de Allende, where we returned to our previous house sit location for a repeat assignment with six lovely cats.
Our home until the end of the year is a short walk to the city centre, and within easy distance of the fantastic local market. We also have a shopping mall nearby with a good supermarket, ten-pin bowling, and a modern cinema which costs just 22 pesos (US $1) on a Wednesday afternoon to see the latest releases.
Our household charges are six easy-going cats, along with a couple of strays that wander through the garden every now and then.
We have a third assignment lined up here too, mid-March to mid-April. San Miguel de Allende (often referred to as SMA) really does feel like it is becoming something of a temporary home town for us now.
