We’ve abandoned the scooters in lieu of walking (temporarily). With Kristina and James in town we’re walking much more (which is a good thing), but after the recent storms it’s getting pretty warm again. And by the time evening rolls around I’m a tired puppy for sure. Yesterday, being Sunday, I decided to introduce the kids to Sabrina (the Taco Lady of Merida) in Parque de la Santa Lucia. We arrived at about 10:30 a.m. and ordered up our tacos, and then watched the free dancing in the square for a time. Later we strolled down to El Mercado de Galvez, in the heart of Centro Historico, on Calle 56 para C65 y C69. The market is vast, covering a number of city blocks, and can be overpowering to the senses for the uninitiated. James and Joel returned to Casa del Jaguar (our house) via taxi, and Kristina and I continued our exploration of the market, and then wandered the streets for a few hours looking for photo opportunities—and of course stopping midday for a couple of ice-cold beers. We rested up in the afternoon, and then headed back out about 7:00 p.m. to grab some dinner, this time indulging our Italian food cravings. We all wimped out and took a taxi home.
