We traveled to Mérida for one night and one night only; for such a small and ancient town–the population is around 58,000—our hotel accommodations were quite nice Everywhere you looked there were ancient Roman ruins. I was struck by the fact that this ancient civilization built these beautiful buildings, now ruins. Today’s modern buildings are nice, but in comparison, we’re pretty lazy builders. So that’s a bummer.I keep bugging the instructor saying “that’s my favorite.” I’ve said this like 100 times. Seriously. But everything was my favorite. For real, Mérida got to me the most; a lot of people will say a museum is their favorite thing about Spain, but I can’t get on board with that. I’m just not a museum person; don’t get me wrong, it was very very nice to see, but walking through ruins of an ancient civilization was way more my cup of café con leche ( delicious btw). So here are some pictures that I have left of Mérida. Unfortunately, I had a malfunction with Facebook and lost my favorite ones, but these gems survived.
