Okay, I should be doing homework, or paying bills, or cleaning the house. But I just had to do some exploring around our new neighborhood now that Google Streetview is online for Merida. I counted the blocks to the new Sendero Mall, which Debbie and Lexy showed me several months ago during a quick scan of local amenities. 11 blocks, not bad. I know the bus to the mall stops very close to our house. It should satisfy many Gringo cravings with its big Soiriana food emporium. There's a Parisina fabric store, and I know they had bolts of inexpensive linen, which could be just the thing to cover the big windows in the front of the house. And apparently a great taco place. More local sights to come in future posts.
