I’m always pleased when new video from Mérida surfaces, representing another opportunity to prove to my friends in New England that the city is, indeed, not a figment of my imagination. It must seem like a strange fantasy, the way I describe it sometimes.
Here’s my latest piece of evidence: Someone, and I don’t know who, has been uploading cool “time-lapse” videos of the city. They are about a minute long, set to house music, and are quite a sight to see. This one, taken with a bike-mounted camera heading north on the Paseo de Montejo, was uploaded five days ago. Cool, eh?
