So...on to the house.
The house is ivy covered and has a beautiful front door, the whole package worthy of southern France. The courtyard, one of several, is/are filled with plants, trees flowers of all kinds and there is always a sunny space and a shady one where one can sit and soak up the ambiance.
I didn't take any pictures of the interior, but I will post some, once the maid comes and cleans up the mess we've made with our belongings, food shopping and general sloth.
But of course, as in a lot of Mexico, the problem lies with the neighborhood. I always thought little of zoning laws, neighborhood covenants, but I never ignored the benefits of an established neighborhood. Out here in the suburbs of San Miguel, it is an empty canvas. The road is unpaved and eroded, the neighbors haven't yet finished their dream homes, construction material and trash lies about. Well, it needs work, but in the meantime, we're loving our situation and the weather. Tomorrow we head into beautiful San Miguel for some culture, coffee, lunch, and a cold beer.
