Over the river and through…

With the time difference of 6 hours you have to be careful you don’t miss breakfast/lunch before they close their doors for siesta.  They won’t open again until 7 or 9 when dinner starts.  So today we crossed the cobblestone bridge which is a half mile long over the river into Merida. It has a large town square full of history. Some partial buildings are still standing from before Christ was born. So hard to believe! We went up tiny streets and down tiny streets watching to make sure we didn’t get hit by the cars that drive these streets as well. The charm was everywhere from the ancient buildings to the brightly colored canvas covering the tables that are lined up outside their cafes. We even found a courtyard to sneak into for a refreshing break of wine with lemon and the plate of olives they always serve with it.
