Painted Buildings
Painted Buildings, Paseo de Montejo, Mexico, by Suprada on Flickr.

Our last day in Merida, I was walking along the Paseo de Montejo. I decided to eat some honey-dew flavored ice cream (which by the way was awesome) at a local ice cream parlor on the street. The street was lined with stores on the pavement selling different kinds of art – paintings, pottery, sketches, sculptures, photographs. Enjoying an ice cream looking at a city go about its leisurely business was very pleasant.

Walking back to the hotel, I saw these buildings which looked like they were starting to go under renovation. The way the buildings looked in the mid-day sun reminded me of the painting: pastel colors and beautiful rough textures.
