Down South in San Miguel | Bella Design and Planning Blog

Here’s another POV/ point of view blog posting about San Miquel de Allende. Today is the Ssssummer Solstice and I’ve decided to table Panama for now and return to Mexico next winter but to another very distinctive area and region;



Easier to access than San Miquel de Allende via Cancun followed by a wonderful bus junket along the highway to Oaxaca stopping off at  a number of facinating places. The Mexican bus lines like Primavera Plus are just so comfortable and economical!

There’s also a tremendous International TESOL/ Teachers of English as a Second or Other Language conference in Cancun in early November. Rentals in Oaxaca are listed on Craigslist and seem reasonable. Will likely just get a well situated, well priced room rental in a secure compound. Back to living out of a suitcase! (Sorry, Suki! I know you want to get out of the rain and you’ve got your poodle sized sombrero packed but Kristine and Neil would miss you far too much!)


My furnished, equipped two bedroom loft townhouse with courtyard that included Telecable, Wifi and weekly maid service (Matilde) will be very, very difficult to beat!



I’m thinking five months mas o menos in Oaxaca intensively working on my Spanish and teaching English
online and one month as an Amtrak vagabond ‘riding the rails!’ Really enjoyed the easy transition returning to my NOB/ North of the Border life via the Coastal Pacific Amtrak train up the coastal route from Los Angeles to Seattle, then Seattle to Vancouver!

Feliz Verano a todo!  Happy Ssssummer to all!
