Feeding the fantasy of a home in Merida

I haven't had a chance to share photos of the house tour last week (just last week?) in Merida. Here are some of the fantasy homes that feed the appetite of gringos like me. We become fixated on finding an abandoned ruin to turn into our own version of the dream casa.
House Hunters International apparently has the same effect. Just yesterday I read a thread on Yolisto.com in which people were talking about what lured them to Merida and the Yucatan. I think about half a dozen said it was the HHI TV show and its Merida episode a couple of years ago.
Anyway, here are some house tour pictures
(Feb. 7/10 I finally got around to changing the title of this post because I had been warned that the original was likely to get caught in spam filters, as it compared real estate photos to certain illicit forms of adult entertainment.)

  1. House porn! You crack me up! But it’s so true. I can’t get enough of all the different types of concrete applications, arch styles, and trying to find pleasing pasta tiles (I’m really picky about the pasta!). I like the sconces, too. Although for the patio, I want the onyx ones. When you use the dimmer at night, the glow effect is so gorgeous.

    This week, Working Gringa commented that HHI just finished shooting another episode in Merida, so I expect the real estate market to pick up quite a bit once it airs!
