At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them. Lest we forget.
C – It was a hungry morning so we ventured off to find some huevos rancheros for breakfast. It was a bit of a slow start to the day, but once we hit the road we knew we didnt really have far to go. Our destination for today was Merida, the capital of the Yucatan state.
The riding again was uneventful. A relatively straight, busy highway with the scenery alternating between small villages, factories and farming land.
Although it was only about 150km, it sure felt like it took us all day. In reality, we arrived in the beautiful city of Merida just on midday and went straight to a hotel which suited our needs just fine.
The weather was hot and steamy, just the way we like it! After filling our tummies with lunch, we retreated to the room for a little siesta.
We ventured out again in the evening, finding the most amazing pizza I think I ever eaten. Seriously, it was amazing. We were enjoying gorging ourselves and trying to remember the last time we had pizza. Neither of us can recall eating pizza since we left Australia! No wonder we enjoyed it and managed to eat the whole thing – all twelve, yes thats 12, slices!
I then joyfully spent the rest of the evening with a tummy ache from eating too much. But, we had a lovely stroll around the main square and soaked up the lively atmosphere of the city on a Friday night.
We will stay here another night and do some more exploring tomorrow. Merida certainly has a lovely charm to it.
