I finally had enough of the mosquitoes!!!
Time to move on so I decided to try out Couchsurfing for the first time. A friend in San Jose del Cabo introduced me and for those of you not in the know, it is a wonderful resource for travellers. Basically it’s a really simple concept – you join (for free) as a host and/or traveller and you can travel all over the world staying with someone for free. The hosts seem to enjoy it as much as the travellers because of their stories so it’s a win/win situation.
After a day of travelling by buses and taxis, complete with the runs, I arrived at my hostess, Joyce’s, at 10.30 in San Miguel de Allende. I was shown up to the roof terrace and was entranced by the magical view over the rooftops of the city with its many churches and cathedral – the lights sparkling and shimmering. Definitely a city to look forward to!
