Moon and Cathedral, by Suprada on Flickr.

Moon rising over the The Cathedral of San Idelfonso, Mérida, Mexico.

In December we spent a few days in Mexico. We landed in Cancun and drove directly to M̩rida РThe White City. On Christmas Eve, we were walking around
Centro (central plaza). Towards evening, the moon was in the sky above the Cathedral which made me make this photo.

More about the Cathedral: The Cathedral of San Ildefonso is the oldest in Mexico, completed in 1598. It was built over an ancient Mayan temple – the stones used to build this cathedral also came from that temple. More information about the Catedral de San Ildefonso

I also found a very good account of a visit to Merida on the internet. Here is the link to
