Anne and I are having fun exploring Merida. We have discovered the need to do this exploring early in the day though, as it has been 34 oC by noon. Fortunately we have a pool to come home and enjoy!
We’ve walked miles and had some great meals, but unfortunately I forgot my camera for the best fish presentation, so will have to go back and try again. We made reservations for Monday for her farewell dinner. This is the best restaurant in town and entrees are only $12.
Yesterday we took a bus to Progreso, a town on the coast about 43 km away. The beach was a little disappointing, so we didn’t spend any time in the water, but walked around, shared some good nachos and came back. Very economical too as the whole day only cost us $7 each!
Today we found a ‘market’ which had everything from food to bicycle parts. Incredibly busy, crowded, noisy and fascinating. Bought some recardo (spice paste) but hesitated on buying the meat today as we don’t need any more food in the house. Next week!
