Greetings From Merida

The weekly theme at 52 Frames  was meant to introduce oneself in a group from many countries & cultures.

Here are my submission (the carriages of Merida’s El Centro – $300mxn for 4 persons), and my 2 alternates: the funky statue, “Maternidad” and the façade of the Montejo Mansion on the central square.  The Montejo Conquistadores enslaved the Maya, destroyed their temples to build their mansion, the cathedral and much of El Centro.  They are the statues standing on the heads of the Maya.CarriageRide_El_Centro
