No Room at the INN

Wow, people love to visit San Miguel.
There is a great deal of activity here in San Miguel over the holidays.
Tonight is New Years Eve and I think everyone has decided to celebrate it here.

I popped into town today to get some pictures of the mounted police that they like to trot out for weekends and holidays.  Trot out, get it! Sorry !

The main plaza is packed, as you can see. Then they proceeded to start  building a stage for this evenings festivities, very organized.

I have been impressed with how well they have been dealing with ALL the traffic, and when I say traffic, I don’t just mean cars, you have to add bikes , scooters donkeys, horses, and horse drawn carriages. Even then they come up with traffic you wouldn’t expect.

For example, below is a picture I took a little before 9 AM this morning out a window facing the rear of our home,  now that is a unique way to jump a traffic jam!

Arriving in Style!

I hope to catch some photos this evening to share with you later.

Have a safe and happy New Year!!!
