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:
Casa de Montejo, built for the Spanish conquistadores…named Montejo
Archway opening up to the Pasaje de la Revolucion
Inside the Pasaje de la Revolucion
Door knocker outside the main cathedral

Mayan mural in the palacio de gobierno; all placards were in Spanish and Mayan

And now, for your moment of zen, Holly asleep on Chris’s foot.
