Calavera Charro / Watercolor and Ink / 6 x 9 inches

Casa Laura, where we are staying with our dear friends Gari and Kayce, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is awash in Katrinas and Calaveras. Of course I will be sharing some of them with you. This Charro and his Señorita are dancing in a nicho in the stairwell, and they are, so far, my favorites.

We went into the center of town today, for lunch, I had chiles en nogado, a meal I especially enjoy, amd the rest had enchiladas in mole poblano. Next, we went to the Jardin to watch children running through the crowd, smashing eggshells filled with colorful confetti on each other's heads and even occasionally on the heads of adults seated on the benches surrounding the park. Gari and Thea, for instance. By the end of the day the plaza was covered solid in eggshells and confetti, all a colorful part of Carnaval in San Miguel de Allende.

The evening found us huddled around plates of macaroni salad and roast chicken while watching the Oscars.

A beautiful and thoroughly enjoyable first day in SMA!

¡Hasta Mañana!

  1. Now you have me wondering about the past. Making me wonder how many giant skulls are in Mexico and how they got there. It amazes me how they are being used. You have found an ancient treasure.
