Biblioteca Público & Atención San Miguel

Aloha Everyone,

After learning about this much prized newspaper from Scott and Gloria, I am happy to say that I finally have one in my possession! First published in 1975, this weekly bilingual community newspaper is now considered the “must read” periodical to find out what’s happening in San Miguel.

Lots of news and advertisement that are of interest to the foreign born active retirees. For example, the Jewish 
Cultural & Community Center page included ads about art lectures; offers of Spanish language classes; information about various medical and psychological care; organized travel to Cuba, Peru and Europe. But the predominant advertisement is by real estate firms like Sotheby’s and Coldwell Banker marketing homes priced from $495,000 USD for 2BD/3 1/2 BA In Centro to $1,700,000 luxury homes. Living in San Miguel is not cheap!

Biblioteca is the community center for expatriates in San Miguel. In addition to information about events, there are notices about the different volunteer opportunities.

After a full day walking up and down the Centro of San Miguel, the two of us were drawn to the Jardin as the evening bells of Parroquia rang. The plaza was lively as ever with a free music concert sponsored by the city.

Aloha -- Cathi
