Types in Stereo

IMG_4506Been back in Minnesota for about 168 hours. Since arriving, heard the following comments and questions about Merida, Mexico, our new home (from shop keeper, my barber, a bar tender, a casual acquaintance):

  • Are you scared there?
  • Can you get good health care?
  • How many murders where you live?
  • How many people live in Merida? Are there any other Americans?
  • I guess the weather is the only good thing about living there, right?

Whoa! Not one question (albeit a small sampling) about art, culture, food, philosophy, or ecology. What questions do you have about Merida? Post a question and I will give you my response. It will be fun to articulate your questions.

  1. Jeff,
    Have you been able to visit the school of Architecture in parque de mejorada?
    The school is located in a historic building that used to be a convent.
    During my years of college the school of architecture of yucatan used to compete nationally against other universities in Mexico called ENEA which stand for encuentro national de estudiantes de arquitectura…proudly I can tell you we always got first place or in our bad times second may be third place with honor recognition all the time.
    El enfoque de esta faculty rely strongly on conceptual design. Great professors and interesting people to meet. Let me know if you would like me to put you in contact with someone there.

  3. Jeff, What is your nose telling you about your new home? Are the smells all new? Did any smells travel with your stuff? Any memories triggered? I could almost smell the wood of your new shelves. I even wondered about those dining room chairs. Also curious about the garden. Of course, the pool and plants have to have a significant olfactory presence, too. It is said that our sense of smell is the first to develop and closely linked to our emotions, so it must be a big part of the experience? I don’t expect that you’d have a ready answer for these questions. I’m sure Simon could probably give a pretty detailed report. Kurt
