They are enjoying Merida so much!

When Carlos, Mike and Tine arrived in Cancun they were able to catch the bus from the airport directly to Merida thus spending more money but saving on some time and stress. Carlos called it the "gringo express". He did like the big comfy bus and not having to go to downtown Cancun!
Arriving at the Fiesta Americana, they hailed a taxi which dropped them off at Las Arecas, the place we usually stay in Merida. This week the four of them have the place to themselves. It is listed on Tierra Yucatan for sale so maybe this has something to do with their empty rooms as well as the economy. Carlos loves to wander over to Santiago in the morning for a leisurely breakfast at La Reina Morena.
On Wednesday he had a dental appointment for a cleaning and a fitting for a new crown. This was a new to us dentist that someone had recommended on their blog. Thanks, he really liked them! (Quality Dental) They are so upfront about their pricing and it is so reasonable! We were able to schedule the appointments on line and they were very quick to respond. Now on Friday he will go to have the new crown put on.
On Wednesday afternoon Carlos took Mike and Tine to our favorite place to eat, Peter Pan-Cho on Calle 82 por 59 y 59A. They really enjoyed both the botanos and the fish!

After the wonderful meal it was time for them to walk the block north and east to our house and view the construction. This would be the first time that Mike and Tine has seen it. Thank you Tine for taking all of these photographs as Carlos' camera ran out of batteries!

The finishing looks great and is almost done!
This morning they are off on a full day bus tour to Chichen Itza. I'm sure I'll have lot's more to report!


  1. I still love all those arches. I can't wait to see it all finished.

    I used Quality Dental last month for a night guard and I, too, was impressed by their service and prices.

  2. Barb, It must have been your blog I got the dental info for... Thanks, it really worked well for Carlos and it will be my turn when I go next time!

  3. Oh, I'm so glad to hear I could help. I've learned soooo much from reading others' blogs. It feels good to have been able to pay it forward. I'm sure it'll go smoothly for you, as well.
