It's the end of the world and all I can think of is yummy carrots!


Tomorrow is the end of the Mayan Calendar and thousands of people from all over the world have gathered here in Merida. The listing of activities is long and range from lectures by archeologists and historians to dancing in the streets, and even gatherings to meditate at some of the larger Maya ruins.
We will be attending the end of the world party at the Merida English Library tomorrow, but really I am just loving the carrots! Today we went to the main mercado and for less than .75 US I purchased 2.2 kilos of yummy delish carrots. Sliced, steamed and with butter and pepper they are the best carrots I have ever eaten!

  2. By "main mercado," I assume you mean the one in Parque Santiago or Santa Ana? Or the San Benito behemouth?

    1. The big one south of the main plaza... BTW.. we were just at your house less than 10 minutes ago. There were at least 10-12 workers there...looks like they are making some progress. I took a couple of photos. Your street looks great and you are only about 7-8 blocks from our house.
