In late December 2009 and early January 2010, I visited the magical town of Merida in Yucatan Mexico. Such a laidback place. The zocolo is magical. Andres Quintana, Casa de Montejo, so much to see. Palaces, churches, mansions, cobblestone roads. The cathedral and important buildings are lit at night. Warm tropical weather in December. The green building is the government palace with murals by Fernando Castro Pacheco.
