A student turns the tables on the blogger  Posted on 12/06/2014
Yesterday I was a little startled by a communications major at Universidad Modelo. She was writing a paper on foreigners involved with rebuilding houses in the historic district. She found me on Facebook and asked to...

Visiting journalists have a way with words  Posted on 11/11/2014
It’s always interesting when a real wordsmith comes to Mérida and starts to write. I’ve always struggled to capture the city in a way that communicates what it feels like to actually be here. I’ve struggled as far...

Settling into everyday life in Mérida  Posted on 09/01/2014
We are here for just a week, but that doesn’t stop us from playing house in our new house. There is something about rolling your shopping cart into the hot parking lot that feels like a rite of passage for a wanna-be...

Honey, I’m home  Posted on 08/30/2014
We were walking around like we owned the place. And we do, we do own the place. This was the first time we walked around in it. Alone, not sharing the space with construction workers. We were handed keys. Just three keys, out of 20-some...

A bolt out of the blue hits us where we live  Posted on 08/11/2014
