William and I went back to San Miguel de Allende for the baptism of my ajihada (goddaughter) earlier this month. She is beautiful 6 month old Olive Celeste and the daughter of my dearest friend Sarah. I love her. We also saw many of our friends who we miss so much, Juana, and my maestra de ceramica Angelina Perez Ibarguen— if you haven’t ever seen her work it is wonderful and a poingant take on humanity from an observer like no other. True to any quick trip, I contracted food poisoning and spent the evening before our departure throwing up, only to spend a tortuous 8 hours flying with a squirming toddler on my lap. Needless to say, we survived.
