A Drive Through the North End of Merida (Norte)
As you will see in the first half of the pictures, there is not much we can't find here that we had in Phoenix. In the second half of the pictures you can see that, in stark contrast to many areas we have shown you prior, many people live like it is Bel Air, CA. They have sprawling mansions with tennis courts and pools. They drive Jaguars and Mercedes.
As promised, to give you all a little more perspective on the other half of Merida, I present Norte:
Not that we ever needed a Jaguar or Mercedes dealership back in Phoenix....
Here are just a few of the hundreds incredible casas in Norte:
Well hopefully that helps show what we mean when we say Merida is a diverse and complicated place to describe. Everything in both the previous entry and this entry are all of 10-20 mins from our house. All crammed inside a circle.
You still won't be able to fully "get it" until you get here... so get here dammit LOL!
