So another day in the life. Today actually began in a really great way. I walked to the central market in Merida today to see what went on down in that area of the city. Both I and a friend wandered through a few sections of craft stalls and fabric vendors before a man stopped us and mapped out the food market for us. This also was conveniently after I had stopped to try a lichi fruit from a vendor nearby – which was incredibly delicious I might add. So… the market – it was incredible. The market itself takes up 4 blocks and includes everything from textiles to spices to fruits, vegetables, meat and poultry. There were soo many people packed into this center – it was amazing. Inside the market itself – you can only see people and their wares in every direction. The place is really reminiscent of what I would consider a middle eastern market to look like. It has that classic look of age, experience, and the unknown. Pictures to come, and although I did not buy anything today. Most assured I will be returning to get a bunch of great pieces for the family and food for my time here. For now adios!
