Hot Dogs on Paseo de Montejo

It’s a relatively cool night tonight, so the windows are open and the A/C is off! We set out for some cheap eats and found this bacon-dog cart along Paseo de Montejo.

We also took a free talking tour of the city center which was interesting, and we learned more about Mérida. Another quick tidbit for you: Mérida was called La Ciudad Blanca, or The White City, way back when because the people dressed in white and the buildings were painted white in order to repel the heat. Here are some sights:
