Snark o’ the week

11 July 2008

Congratulations to San Miguel de Allende for finally making it into UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites. The town campaigned pretty hard for it, though it’s not exactly clear to us why. Not only do they not need additional tourism, but the booming trade in Texan gringa plastic surgery is bound to be affected, since UNESCO rules prohibit the alteration of historic facades without a permit from INHA.

    San Miguel deserves the recognition. It is a great city. The colonial architecture, the history, the festivals, culture, and people from all over the world, make it a city worth saving!
