New Wheels

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.

Nice run-about. Back country Yucatan can be a bit rutted up, a skid plate for under the engine and trany might give you a bit of peace-of-mind when the going gets rough.

Cool. The Crossfox is one of the cars we are considering when we move to Merida next year.

If you want to write a bit about your car buying experience, we sure would read it :)

Second Ron's comments including having considered the CrossFox before we bought the Jetta. Details would be fun.
