mexico: Safety for Mexico Homes in Merida Recognized; Airport Security - 03/11/11 12:13 AM
I have traveled to the Yucatan several times including Merida. The airport security was very thorough, the people extremely friendly & I freely roamed the city without any concerns to my safety. Being a taller, blonde woman, I did stand out quite a bit so I could have been an easy target. I found this recently posted blog & it accurately describes the area.

mexico: Chicken Itza, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico - 03/09/11 03:20 PM

The Temple of Kukulkan, Chichen Itza, Mexico 10-2010 Annalisa Weller
When I was in the 5th grade we studied the Mayans, Aztecs & Incas. I was particularly drawn to the Mayans. I dreamed of someday going to Chichén Itza to see the great pyramid, the observatory & of course, the unbelievably huge ball court. The photo of the stone hoops carved with intertwining serpents high up the side of the stone walls that was in our history of the Americas school book fascinated me.  I promised myself back then that I would see it in person someday. Finally, I did go to experience Chichén Itza this … (2 comments)

In October, the Pinellas International Council held a trade mission to the Cancun-Playa del Carmen-Cozumel area of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.

Diane Kennedy & Rick Bayless in the Yucatan? In Merida? Wow, I have known of them & their cookbooks since the early eighties. I own several well-loved & well stained copies of their books.

When I lived in California, I at one time owned over 300 cookbooks. Some of my most used & cherished books are Italian, Greek, Mexican & Native American cookbooks. And now, to find out the authors of some of my favorite … (0 comments)

While visiting the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico in October 2010, I was in heaven! For 11 days, I savored the people, the food, the music, the architecture & the climate-it is all so beautiful.
Catedral de Merida, Mexico 10-2010
In Merida, as a blonde woman, I immediately felt welcomed, comfortable & safe. Even though I was there on business, I was able to take in some of the wonderful sights & smells. I love how the ancient traditions blend with the modern daily life & technology. As I walked through the Plaza Grande, Mayan vendors sell basically the same delicious … (3 comments)
