Once a huge metropolis of a million souls, San Miguel is a tiny hamlet today surrounded by rings of ghost structures, many of them quite beautiful. The old men of San Miguel wander through the city, looking for gems to donate to other communities. The famous Eight Pointed Star stained glass window at the Library of San Miguel was donated by the good people of this San Miguel in gNew Mexico.Most communities, quite frankly, dont value the donations too highly, but the monasteries tend to be gracious. At the San Miguel Monastery, though there is no historical connection between the two, a genuine bond has developed between the communities and a room exists on that island which is essentially a reconstruction of a space from gNew Mexico. Occasionally, even, an old man from San Miguel will give away his possessions and go to the monastery for his last years.
