large_938978_13681133446734.jpgAfter spending most of the afternoon on Chichén Itzá we went on to Mérida, a colonial city where we had a nice dinner and an evening off. It's a nice city with a central square, a lot of pigeons. We only saw a little of it as we only spent one night there.

We visited the Governors Palace, it's full of symbolic paintings, about Mexico and the suppression of the Mayan people, and the revolt against the slavery of the Spanish. There is also a beautiful cathedral and several shops around the square. We didn't see much more o it unfortunately. We ate our dinner at Pancho's, a café/bar/restaurant. Not expensive, and the food was really nice. A nice place to sit as well. We only took something small because we weren't really hungry. After that it was back to he hotel since it was a long day and an early start in the morning.
