Spring Break 2009 Schedule:

Day 1 – Monday, March 16

Day 2 – Tuesday, March 17

· In the morning you’ll go on a walking tour of San Miguel’s historic center.  San Miguel was designated a World Heritage site this year and on this tour, you’ll see why! (You will be amazed at the amount of houses you walk by that are for sale and the sales pitch from the Tour Guide.  You will only be shown art galleries and jewelry shops and given a brief history of the founding of San MIguel by Stirling Dickenson in 1938)

· Next you’ll attend a delicious comida (luncheon) in another fabulous home.  (Which amazingly will also be for sale)

Day 3 – Wednesday, March 18

· In the morning, you’ll take a ride into the country to visit some of the villages to which we provide medical and dental services.  (Be prepared to mount a donkey)

· Your lunch on this day will be at a lovely home in the countryside near the villages you visited.  (One of you will have bought this house last night)

· We’ve cleared the afternoon for you to shop at some of San Miguel’s wonderful stores!  (If you have ever gone a cruise ship tour, you always end up at some little shop where  the tour guide seems to know the owner very well)

Day 4 – Thursday, March 19

Day 5 – Friday, March 20
