Mérida RAWKS!

I spent like.. all of today walking around the entire city… enjoying the beauty of it most of the time… then becoming frustrated when trying to find an intersection that didn’t exist… or… more accurately… exists in more than one place…

I started heading up Pasaje Montejo… which is Mexico’s answer to the Champs Elysee… It’s a nice boulevard with beautiful old mansions and nice trees lining it and there’s sculptures every few yards in the middle of the wide sidewalk… very nice indeed… until I stumbled upon a (disguised, thankfully) Walmart…

I went in just to look around… and it was weird… being bombarded with thousands and thousands of products… I haven’t had that experience in months… everywhere I’ve been since Panama City, you have the choice of 4 or 5 shampoos… not 30… It’s overwhelming… I (disgracefully) plopped down some money on hair gel stuff… ’cause I couldn’t get anything decent anywhere else… and if I ever want to go out in Mexico I’m not going to be able to wear my grubby, sweat stained and faded hat… though my hair is so overgrown that it’s almost as bad… Some pics below…
