Merida is a city of over 1 million people and, it seems, just as many cars, buses, trucks and scooters. And, still, it is a place for walkers. I love to walk around the city and admire the architecture and window shop.
But there are other things I want to do also. And for those, I need my own transportation.
I recently purchased myself a used car for driving to and from Merida and, more importantly, driving myself around the Yucatan to places I still want to explore.
It's a low mileage, 2006 VW Lupo Crossfox. So far, I'm loving it.
