In the center stands proud this statue of Iforgethisname, staunchly Facing the Small church across the street.
I think the staircase in Merida, Both indoors and out, are Simply stupendous. Architecture in Their Own right.
You Can Also find an abundance of These in most parks.
They are Called Courting benches. Given Our Puritan heritage and Mexico's Catholic one, You Can Probably Understand why.
A different view of Lord Iforgethisname. Brilliantly siloutteted Against the sky.
Also abound in the city churches. They are Everywhere you turn. Each one a classic.
Just in case you missed the pigeon taking a break in the photo above!
And here she is proud in all of her glory: The Grand Hotel. Way Beyond my budget.
Just look at the detail and the paint job. She is a magnificent piece of Meridian archetecture.
If you ever get a chance to visit Merida, I hope you take a stroll around. Or better yet, hop onto one of the city tour buses. There are Some magnificent parks and buildings to see There.
