While staying around Lake Chapala, we were going to drive to San Miguel Allende for an overnighter, but I got food poisoning in Ajijic. Don't eat anything that is not cooked, no liquids (not even ice cube) unless it's sealed, no fruit unless you can peal it. I made the stupid mistake of putting sour cream on my baked potato. Drats, it was New Years Eve and I was sick for four days. I had lost my visa; I needed to present it before boarding the plane for my return. The Guadalajara airport immigration guy tried to get money from me before releasing the visa. I refused to budge, both of us not giving in, so a long line formed in the meantime. He finally got mad and threw the visa at me. Then, while stopping at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport to change planes, airport security was a nightmare. They got really nasty with me when I didn't obey quickly enough to remove my shoes. What a trip!

Gracias otra vez, Senora....San Miguel is a very pretty and colorful town...the old Aztec Eagle, from Laredo down to the DF, used to stop there and two thirds of the gringos would get off...it finally got so over-run with Nortenos it hardly even felt like Mexico any more...you'd sit in a cafe and hear more English than Spanish..but it is no doubt still a place of great charm and physical beauty....
