      I took this tour in 2019, the last time before COVID that I was able to visit San Miguel.
      I loved taking part in the tour and highly recommend it.
      I bought the most magical hooked pillow cover…a beautiful cow with blue spots.
      The Otomi people welcomed us with warmth and grace.
      Hope you will include this tour while in San Miguel.
      The women of this town are strong and talented and are contributing so much to keep their culture and their community vibrant and alive.
