TRAVEL

Even if you're not yet ready to retire, San Miguel de Allende is perfect for a vacation or long weekend getaway. Getting there United and American airlines offer connecting flights (via Texas) to San Miguel's two closest airports, Leon/Guanajuato (BJX), 90 minutes away, and Queretaro (QRO), one hour away. Round-trip airfares start around $600. Multiple airlines offer flights to Mexico City, which is three hours from San Miguel. When to go January may be the sole inclement month to travel, and even then it's nothing compared to a typical Baltimore winter.

In June 2009, my husband Sam and I slammed down the hatchback of our Honda CRV, the interior bulging with containers of Legos and books, school supplies and board games, and a box of shoes, a tin of Old Bay in the glove compartment. On the roof was a plastic carrier with as much clothing as we could stuff into it: the necessities of five soon-to-be expatriates. Everything else was in the basement of our Lutherville home, with a new family moving in at the end of the month. Our mission: to give our three children a taste of life in a foreign country, where the language, food, and culture would be vastly different from suburban Baltimore.

It was 48 hours to Revolution Day in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and the local kindergartners were practice-parading through their Mexican village like pint-sized "Zapatistas" -- boys sporting Pancho Villa mustaches, girls rouged and ruffled into elegant senoritas. In the spirit of the occasion, they carried balloons, banners and, of course, guns, albeit toy ones.Among the cheering onlookers were many Americans, who I first assumed were on a tour. After all, I'd just gotten off a bus myself.

I DROVE TO southwestern Baltimore County recently to hear how beer is made on the other side of the world. In the Clipper City Brewing Co., I sat down with Ernesto Lazaro Igot, who told me about the beer-making and beer-drinking practices in the Philippines, his native land. Igot is new to Clipper City, but not to the beer business. He was a top brewer for San Miguel brewery, one of Asia's largest breweries. As a manager of technical services, he supervised beer-making at 13 breweries and two brew pubs.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush broke his public silence yesterday about Vice President Dick Cheney's shooting of a hunting companion, declaring that Cheney had delivered "a very strong and powerful explanation" of the incident. The sheriff's office looking into the shooting said it had ended its investigation and no charges would be filed. Bush said he had no complaints with the manner in which Cheney handled the disclosure of the shooting, which came a day after the incident occurred. But asked whether he was "satisfied with the timing," the president said: "I'm satisfied with the explanation he gave."

SAN MIGUEL, El Salvador -- At 17, Gustavo Adolfo Morales is a legend -- the hero of a rap song banned from the radio airwaves and the symbol of a lost generation.He has been convicted of murdering six people in a two-year reign of terror as a youth gang leader in this sweltering city in eastern El Salvador. Police suspect that he actually killed 17 people, but proving his guilt in the other 11 crimes would be academic.No matter how many people he killed, Morales will serve only seven years because he is under 18 and that is the maximum sentence for a minor, no matter how horrible -- or numerous -- the crimes.
