Murals with a message say it loud: I mask-up and I’m proud

Frida is cool with wearing a mask. Just ask her. New Mural on 28 de Abril, just up the street from Orizaba.

Masks as art in the window of Abrazos, the fabric store on Zacateros.

A cynic might say there are more murals, statues and pictures wearing masks in San Miguel de Allende than actual people.

I wouldn’t know.

Lately, the only people I hang out with are murals, statues, and pictures. And they all seem to be wearing masks.

Which is why I prefer their company to that of people who will not wear masks. They even look smarter than people without masks.

As an introvert, I’m a huge fan of social distancing, too, and staying at home with my books, my movies, my writing, my wine, my dog and my wife. And not in that order.

Below, some of our finest citizens find face masks fashionable. From left, the mojiganga in front of HRM hotel, the statue of Jose Manuel Zavala Zavala in Centro, and the cool dude in the T-shirt shop on the Ancha, who isn’t wearing a mask but he washes his fucking hands…

Like the man says, ¡Póntelo ya!
