Long time since last post... two and half years?
Last seen leaving Netherlands on a cool spring morning in 2015, heading home to San Mateo.
this morning in San Mateo is similar to that last day in Netherlands... cool again at 48 degrees just before dawn. Lunar eclipse this morning! A good day to hit the road again. To where? Mérida, Mexico, con my amiga especial
Katie. Porque? Para estudiar y practicar la espanol. Y creo que es 85
degrees mas o menos hoy en Merida... tan bueno! Hace calor!
has been a travels-by-bicycle blog, mainly. Is there any bike
connection to this trip to qualify for a spot here? Well, yes.
we decided last year to spend this February in Mérida, studying Spanish
and just kind of hanging out down where it is warm every day, we
checked out AirBnB to find a place to stay. Lots of nice apartments and
houses in old downtown colonial Mérida! How to pick? Well, one stood
out... how could we resist this pitch: "Style on a budget: two free
bikes" ? They had our number, we were helpless to resist. Think parts
of Mérida are closed to car traffic on Sundays -- hope so -- should be
fun cruising around. At minimum, we'll have two bikes parked in our
living room, so the apartment will seem like home from the very start.
