I live in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, a very beautiful and lively state in Mexico. San Miguel is very traditional and pretty. There are all sorts of fiestas that people celebrate together. It is also visited by people from various places in the world.
San Miguel has a song entitled "San Miguelito." All the people say that San Miguel is the crib of a revolutionary man named Allende.
In the center of the city there is the Parroquia, the principal church.The principal garden, or jardin, has more than 20 trees, thirty benches, and a gazebo. Every Sunday, the mariachi bands play there.
I study English in the public library that is situated on Insurgentes street.
With this, I say goodbye, I hope you are well, your friend, Juana Laura.
Curious about life in Mexico?The kids in San Miguel would love to receive letters from pen pals.
