The Woolworth store! Has some of everything. Good prices too.


From the taco stand down a few blocks. Wonderful fresh tortillas and these are with asada. There are two salsas. The picante is red. Hot! The green is less. Nice! Both are good. Next door to the stand is an oxxo store.


Taking the long way on the short walk

Have you ever decided to take the long way on the day's walk? Today I decided because it was so beautiful to walk another way to reach the place or places I enjoy walking each day. The walk was down some streets I have not walked before. I found little cafes and taco places. I'm never surprised to find taco places here but I really liked the little coffee places and desayunos.

Here comes the sun

Morning here and the days start out beautiful. Coffee and moments spent in no particular endeavor. Last night was particularly enjoyable for dinner. My new friend J and I walked down the Malecon and then just decided to stop at Serranos Meat House and enjoyed a dinner together. Then we walked slowly back looking at all the food vendors, people out enjoying the evening, and particularly how the rainy evening had softened and cooled the air.

The times here have been a delightful mix of daily walking, doing my own yoga and meditation thing, food, beer and a wonderful room to call home. I wanted something different from December to March so Merida became interesting.

Wringing the words

I've spent the last days getting some old posts on micro.blog. These cover three years of crap I had written about wandering all around Southeast Asia and beyond. It took a few days to go back and add in the images and fix some issues with the posts that were imported. The finale is that the blog now has those posts. I think that's a good thing. When I came to micro.

Coffee and Cambodia

There is a lot of news and speculation what Cambodia will do in the next days as far as reopening all segments of the economy including welcoming vaccinated travelers back. There are a few expat forum sites which cover the news and the time is getting close to when they decide. Cambodia has really achieved in a significant way with vaccination efforts across their country. It would be interesting to see them open before year's end but I really think it will be starting next year.
