Jo-Ann wanted to know which house we actually bought, out of the many I viewed and posted about here last year.
Here it is, the morning after we massacred the overgrown ficus tree in front, in March. The leaves have grown back since then but it needs another pruning to give it a decent shape and keep the branches out of the overhead wires.Our casa is about a dozen blocks east of the Plaza Grande where everyone goes for concerts and dancing and big events. It's in a residential neighborhood called Chem Bech, which is the name of the market about a block away whose vendors sell everything from fresh fish and fruit to toilet paper. I can't find too much information about Chem Bech online but, judging from the mural on the front wall of the building, it appears that it might have been the historic site of a Mayan market of some sort. I'll research this and get back to you on it.
