Donatella Spa

donatello artistsDonatello (Donato di Niccolò di Betto Bardi), master of sculpture in both marble and bronze, one of the greatest of all Italian Renaissance artists was ruled out because he is dead.

Well in San Miguel you are never quite sure but he would be over 500 so I think it is safe to assume he is dead.


teenage_mutant_ninja_turtles_originsDonatello (Don or Donny) is a fictional character that appears in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media. Now, unlike some residents of San Miguel, who confuse magic and reality, this Donatello can be ruled out because he was a comic book character and not real.

But in San Miguel you can never be too sure.

There is something about that bleached blonde European look that is a bit awry in San Miguel.

You don’t see many Europeans in San Miguel who look like this.

Most of Europeans in San Miguel are of the earnest variety – backpacks and hiking books.

This look is so un San Miguel.


Yet there she was one morning in the Jardin. Donatella Versace walking the streets of San Miguel.  Could she be here for plastic surgery?  In San Miguel you can be sure they are here for plastic surgery.
