Mexico here we come!
We leave Friday morning and fly to Merida, where we are going to meet new friends and explore the city and all of the beach towns. We don't know exactly where we want to live yet, the beach or the city.
We've always wanted to live at the beach. I want to watch the moods of the ocean every day. I NEED to look out on the ocean. The cons, however are the fact that the ocean takes its tolls on your home and everything in it. Rebar rusts, foundations crumble, books mold, art flakes away. Wild dogs roam the beach and anyone can party or camp our in front on your house. No one owns the beach...a good and bad thing. We could also roam the beach on foot on in the ATM we hope to buy. Whee!
- Centro is full of colonial patio homes with tall ceilings and pasta tile floors.
- The North has modern homes.
