Guanajuato II Part 6. San Miguel de Allende

We headed to San Miguel de Allende to meet up with the Urban Sketchers San Miguel de Allende. I met Meagan Burns in Chicago last summer. She is a Chicagoan who lives now in San Miguel de Allende and one of the administrators of this chapter. I agreed I would visit the town this month. We met at the Lavaderos Publicos (public sinks). Here, people do their laundry, still today, yes, like old times. I saw someone doing laundry few years ago when I visited the town, but never sketched the place, so when I knew the meet up would be here I jumped of joy. A crowd of 32 people showed up! As usual my hubby was my model. Meagan treated us with cookies to celebrate Valentine's day. She also gave us a USk SMA book mark and a sticker which I used to identify where and with who the sketch was done. Meagan was very friendly and gracious, thanks Meagan!

Next day, while in San Miguel, Bob and I visited La Gruta Spa (The Grotto Spa) a place to bath in thermal waters. Here in the sketch, there's an opening in the pool that leads to the grotto. I wish I could sketch the steamy interior dome, maybe next time.
