San Miguel Light
Before my trip, people had told me about the light in San Miguel de Allende. That it was somehow different, softer, better for painting, in this city. I didn't believe them until I was walking toward downtown from the Jardin Botanico and noticed the way the setting sun was reflecting on the pinks, oranges, and reds of the adobe-style haciendas. Beyond the shops and Americanized restaurants, San Miguel is a city for walking, preferably up in the hills. It's there that you'll discover the color, architecture, and rays of light that have attracted so many artists.
