I forgot to get sunscreen so I went to the local Botica (pharmacy/ drugstore) and after fumbling through my Lonely Planet Mexican-Spanish phrasebook, asked for a bloqueador solar.
The pharmacy was having some promo going on (don’t know what) but their mascot was cute.
Can’t remember what was in this building, but it reminds me of any City Hall (glamourised version) in the Philippines
This church had awesome lighting at night. But the doors were closed (even during the day)
After dinner I tried some local deserts. It was just too hot even at night so I went for the Sorbete de Limon (lemon Sorbet)
I preferred Merida at night. I still wouldn’t use the word “bustling” to describe it but at least there were more locals around. I like going to a place where I can see how locals actually live their every day lives. Merida just had that atmosphere of being “temporary”. Everything there seemed to be catered for tourists (but not as heavy as Cancun) yet it was sad to see because there were absolutely no tourists around.
We saw these local girls too selling woven wear.
