A BIRTHDAY is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip.

Hi Bebe...
I was in Guatemala for a month (the month of November) and sorry that I did not see your post earlier. Are you still coming to SMA in February?

You do not need a car (and I discourage it...though I have one here, myself), Spanish School depends on what level you are at, TONS of places to stay and visit. I would look up a Yahoo Group to join: San Miguel Civil list. Not always very civil, but you will find lots of info.

As for jobs: you cannot work here legally, especially as a tourist. And like everywhere in the world, jobs are scarce. I work online, and do not have any work here in Mexico. The money that can be made in Mexico is far less than minimum wage in the US. If that is critical, that could be an issue.

San Miguel is beautiful, and has all price ranges of places to stay. There is also a San Miguel Renter list (not sure of the spelling), where you can find an apartment to rent for two months.

I would be happy to give you my thoughts on areas you might consider staying etc. You can always email me at msmullen (at) gomodesign (dot) com.

Good luck, and again, so sorry it took so long to reply (or realize there was a message for me here).

Hi Maureen,
I am seriously thinking about moving to San Miguel in the near future. I want to come visit in February-March.
Would you be willing to be my "pen pal"? I will have questions about where to stay when I visit, do I need a car, best Spanish school, info on any jobs (part time)...things like that.
I will thank you with a dinner at the restaurant of your choice and unlimited tequila! (if you drink, if not we will come up with something else!)
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you! Bebe Selders
