Archeological site of Cañada de la Virgen

We recently visited the newly opened archeological site of Cañada de la Virgen located approximately 20 miles from San Miguel de Allende. We spent the morning exploring the ruins with Albert Coffee, an archeologist and tour guide that has been directly involved with the excavation of the site for several years.

If you choose to visit the park, you must know that you will need to park at the entrance and take a shuttle with a guide to a spot located about 1km from the ruins. From there, you will walk the rest of the way.

Here are some pictures that we took of the site.

Our Hummingbird Friends Stop by for a Drink

It has been a few months since we filled our courtyard with hummingbird feeders. Now our hummingbird friends are constantly here feasting from the endless supply of "comida casera para colibris" also known as simple syrup. Check out these photos taken by our recent guest, Bob Lickiss.
