Time flies when you’re having fun. It also seems to fly when you are working hard too.
Both of these have certainly been true for us this past month.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our final five-week stay in San Miguel de Allende, and are very sad to be leaving today. We’re not sure when we will be back, but Mexico has certainly grown on us over the past eight months.
A visit to Guanajuato
We’ve managed to squeeze in a couple of interesting day trips in recent weeks, including a visit to neighbouring city of Guanajuato.
Guanajuato is an absolutely breath-taking little city high in the mountains, where tiny streets climb the hillsides in an almost unfathomable colourful maze.
Tunnels under the city take traffic in all directions, and getting lost is practically guaranteed if you wander for a while. We’ll certainly be coming back here one day!
We’ve been working hard too this month.
After our return from Cuba we had to fit a month of online English teaching into the second half of March. And with new destinations ahead in mid-April, we had to fit another month of teaching into the first two weeks of this month.
And of course, we’ve also had this issue of House Sitting Magazine to prepare and produce. So we’re looking forward to a bit of a break over the second half of April.
Onward to Botswana
Today we travel to Cancun, before heading to the UK for a six-day whistle-stop tour to catch up with friends and family.
Then we fly south for our next house sit assignment – three months out in the African bush, looking after an off-grid home right by the water’s edge in Maun, Botswana.
We’re very excited.
We are led to believe that we will have hippos and crocs in the river at the bottom of the garden.
So we’re hoping we can get some good images of the African wildlife we will have on our doorstep over the next three months.
Keep an eye on the website for pix.
We hope you enjoy the magazine as much as we enjoy putting it together.
See you again next month.
