The Rainy Season

Rainstorm on Correo, San Miguel de Allende, July 2016

Rainstorm on Correo, San Miguel de Allende, July 2016

It is the rainy season in San Miguel, and many evenings, just as you are ready to sit outside and enjoy a Margarita, the heavens open up and it buckets down for an hour or so. San Miguel is built on a fairly steep hillside, so all this rain becomes a raging torrent in the cobbled streets as it gathers momentum on its way downtown. When this happens there is no way you can cross from one sidewalk to another, so you just have to stay put and enjoy the show for a while.

Originally, there used to be a walkway all the way down the center of Broadway where it passed through the Upper West Side. Now, it is planted with trees and benches at the crosswalks provide a favorite place to sit and think. Or just sit. Another in a series of everyday life in New York.

Eats

Traditional supermarkets, most of which were fairly shoddy places and will not be missed, are fleeing from New York City in droves. Instead, many folks are now ordering online from Freshdirect and other suppliers, leading to a new class of minimum-wage occupations. This guy is heaving some nosh for Upper West Siders up Amsterdam avenue. That’s 24 families taken care of including one lot who get toilet paper as well.

Frank Gehry, How About That

Trashcan on Upper West Side, New York, May 2016

This trashcan has suffered some tragic mishap but continues to soldier on like all true New Yorkers. I was tempted to adopt it and add it to my found art collection. Click on the photograph for an instant view of a larger and more detailed image.

Dog in doorway, Loreto, San Miguel, Apr 2016

Dogs, dogs, everywhere. Particularly the tiny ones which Mexicans love. A preference that perhaps would improve New York instead of the massive megacanines that seem to be the favorite there. Thanks to this one in particular for posing so nicely.

Most of the visitors from Mexico City have now returned home, so the flower sellers are taking it easy for a while. As always, wonderful colors.
