|Delicious dinner at our house - front left looks like|
potatoes but it is roasted grapes!

Our cousin Michele Rapp came to visit us for a week during our 5 weeks back in San Miguel before we head off for Ecuador (in early September). Visitors always give us a chance to repeat fun things and to add a few new ones. Here are some pictures from a small town about one hour from here - Santa Rosa de Lima where we walked through a beautiful forest and then when the rain came found ourselves inside this beautiful little church - just in time to keep from getting soaked. After, we continued our walk and then had time to visit the small pottery factory right on the main street that sells pottery world wide.

We were joined by our friends Kris and Cedric and our new friends, Meredith and Jerry. One of the things we love about SMA is the many interesting people we meet (mostly gringos) and from each we share and learn new things. Meredith and Jerry are our mentors for our adventure after next which will hopefully be walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela Spain which we plan to do in the spring of 2012. They walked it this past spring and are providing us much enthusiasm as well as details for packing, carrying, etc.

|Guanajuato for the day|
We went by bus to Guanajuato for another fun day out of town. All in all it was a great week with her.

The next installment of this blog will probably come in September from Ecuador.
Once again we say love to all of you and we are glad you are along with us on our travels. We love you.
