Not All That Bad

That structure in front of Hacienda Mundaca is finally finished. Well, the palapa part has been done for a bit now, I just hadn't gotten around to taking pictures of it yet.

I think they actually did a great job on it. It is very impressive and elegant looking.




That painted stone archway in the background is the actually entrance into the grounds.



The shapes, shadows and lines of this structure I found quite pleasing to the eye.











What I don't understand is the why of it. There are no benches for people to sit and just enjoy this structure. It is covering nothing but a concrete slab. I think maybe it is just an attention getter. Trying to get more tourists to stop here.
And why should they stop here?
To buy even more souvenir stuff at these yet to be occupied stalls is my guess.


All in all though, a very pleasing spot has now been constructed out of just a piece of dirt parking lot. If they put in some benches, I would have no complaints about it all.

Agreed - the lines are very appealing and I also think it is funny that intention is not clear ...

Eye catching .. maybe the benches are coming.

They must have figured out that sitting people are not buying anything but walking people are.....

yes - probably seats to follow. Looks interesting and well done.

It's unique ... and eye-provoking .... I thinks it's a great move to the 21st century, and and improvement to the crap that was there.

I loved the old look. The small shops out front. I am sure I will love the new though too. Some benches would be nice. Maybe a little daytime music in the shade? Some guitar or singing? Or how about some dancing? Such a great space not to be utilized.
