Please stay tuned...

...I have been in San Miguel de Allende since last Friday night and have been having a successful painting trip but not so much with the internet...I may need to wait until I get home before I am able to upload my pictures. Day 1 was spent shopping and getting acclimated to the area before Ros´80th birthday party/gallery opening which was a blast...I haven´t been here for two years...and it´s still so very beautiful but coming into modern times with a new superstore (Mega) and a mall (a controversial topic last time we were here) a little outside of town. The bakery at Sobriana (I thought it was Gigante...), another brand new and sparkling clean supermarket had probably the best chocolate cake with fruit on top for the equivalent of about $5.80. We got this to celebrate Ros´and Kelley´s birthdays again (back at the B & B by the pool) with our friend Sandie who came to Holland with us and Ros´friend Joanne. Our hosts joined us and it was a nice afternoon. On Palm Sunday, Kelley and I painted at the Jardin while the Palm Sunday procession came through town and passed in front of us en route to the Parroquia which we were painting. Some guy passing by liked our paintings and bought them off the easel...imagine that!

I noticed you omitted the episode with the cheese :)

Paula Villanova said... we invited our guests over to enjoy some wine and cheese by the pool, but the dogs who live at the B&B that we stayed at beat us to the cheese...(that's another story..!) The cake was perfect though...who needs cheese? Thanks for checking in...I can't believe it's over. I want to go back!
