The façades of Mérida, Mexico

Mérida is the capital of Yucatan. It is a lively city with its busy markets, local restaurants and comedores, loud Latin music in every store, painted façades, screaming birds on the main square where locals meet at sunset to chat on a bench.

If Mérida is famous for its colorful painted façades, many of them were painted quite a while ago… Past the touristy squares and shady arches with nicely restored houses the charm of Mérida resides in its buildings about to crumble down.
