Yesterday, thanks to an invitation from a friend to an organic and sustainable food market, I took a walk in Santa Maria de Guido. Santa Maria is a pueblo with a long history that sits above Morelia, overlooking the city and the valley with wonderful vistas. For a long time it remained a small, almost forgotten place on the ridge inhabited by a mix of families who had been there for many generations and a sprinkling of foreigners. In relatively recent times, the brow of the hill has been taken over by the march of fine homes seeking the view from the side of the ridge in the Villas area. In the last few years, the Altozano development and shopping center was started on the Eastern end of the ridge and Santa Maria has been passed by in some ways.
