Flashback to Mexico. In the space of an hour two shiny couples paraded past the cafe where I was sitting. There were carriages, mariachis, giant creepy puppets of bride and groom and lots of fascinated tourists. Apparently San Miguel de Allende has become a destination for destination weddings for Chilangos, a slang and somewhat obnoxious term for rich people from Mexico City. They have also begun to buy weekend houses in the surrounding areas—not much room left at the center of town.
