A moving picture of the Streets of San Miguel de Allende

A short video we shot on our last afternoon in San Miguel de Allende. This is the new HD version. At the time we didn’t have the bandwidth to upload HD quality videos. All shot with an Olympus Pen EP-2 and edited in Final Cut Pro X. Enjoy.

    Ah, the memories of a pretty pretty and photogenic town.

    It was amusing to see so many Canadian- and American-retirees (escapees?) here in SMA, too. Then again, I wonder how many of them are willing to learn Spanish and/or able to hold a conversation with locals …

      Hi Henry – agree, it’s just gorgeous, isn’t it? We hear you alright: a whopping 10% of the population were expats when we were there in 2010. And the expats we met gave visitors recommendations to eat at expat-owned restaurants/bars, shop at expat-owned stores, do cooking courses ran by expats, etc. This was our response: http://grantourismotravels.com/2010/09/24/tips-to-getting-the-most-out-of-san-miguel-de-allende/ and more specifically these http://grantourismotravels.com/2010/09/21/taking-traditional-mexican-cooking-classes-in-san-miguel/ and http://grantourismotravels.com/2010/09/20/lessons-in-silvermaking-in-san-miguel-de-allende/ and http://grantourismotravels.com/2010/09/22/the-sounds-of-san-miguel-de-allende/

      Also, take a read of this interview we did on the subject with retiree Richard Lander* I think you’ll enjoy it: http://grantourismotravels.com/2010/09/22/the-gangs-of-san-miguel-de-allende/ and then click through to his hilarious blog. *Richard is the father of Christian Lander, author of the blog and bestselling book Stuff White People Like.
