Tianguis: Market Day in San Miguel de Allende

Waking up in San Miguel de Allende on Market Day

A fat cactus greets me

Local shops decked out for the holidays

Papel Picados add color to the streets

Christmas Pinatas adorn a downtown shop
Visual refreshment

Street musicians strolling

Hat vendor

Mariachis mingle

Explosions of color in everyday objects

Textures for the senses: Wrenches

Nail Polish


Electrical cords and plugs

Fresh herbs bring spice

Bolsas to take it all home
Mezcal from Oaxaca

Fresh lime from the garden

Set the table with salsa

Hit the hammock at the end of the day
