Travel Tuesday: History & Books

Last month, I took a day off from teaching to check out some things around San Miguel de Allende (SMA). I started at the Biblioteca Pública, which has an awesome gift shop, books in both Spanish and English, a beautiful courtyard where you can sit and read, and a cafe where I grabbed lunch and did some reading on my Kindle.

As a history lover, I enjoy going to museums that are especially dedicated to the local history. So I toured the Museo Histórico de San Miguel de Allende. The museum is located in the house that Ignacio Allende, a hero in the Mexican independence movement, was born in 1769. It sits in Centro with a gorgeous view of the Parroquia. The museum includes the history of the city as well as the Allende family, showing living conditions of the well to do in this time period. All signage in the museum is in Spanish and English. If you love history then this is a must-see when you are in SMA

Wanderlust. Adventurer. Mom. Mentor. Change Agent. Crazy. Servant Leader. Citizen of the World These are all words that describe me - or have been used to describe me. There are many more but we won't get in to those. What is important to know is that at the age of 45, after having a successful career and raising a son, I decided I needed a new challenge and adventure in my life. So I joined the Peace Corps. Portions of this blog were written before this time and chronicle my life during graduate school (again, something I did in my 40s). During my service in Morocco (September 2016 - December 2018) I chronicled my daily life and all it entailed to live as an American female in another country. this is a place for me to capture random thoughts and share my life's journey
