    I can’t believe you left out “The Insider’s Guide to San Miguel” by Archie Dean? I realize he has his “likes” and leaves out his “dislikes”, but it has been my Bible in San Miguel for years. You must leave out your “dislikes” also. Better for both of you to be as helpful as possible to visitors to SMA.
