Photographer's Note

Here's a shot from behind the zocalo of Merida, the big city of the Yucatan. On the right is the side of the central cathedral, with one of the bell towers. On the left is a row of pricy boutique shops.

Merida, situated on the NW corner of the peninsula was at one point one of the richest cities in the western hemisphere. Then the native sisal plant was the popular choice worldwide for making ropes, sacks, and the like, and also used for clothing. Now all that remains is the legacy, as well as the very impressive mansions on Montejo Street. One such example is in the workshop. Nowadays most have been converted to various city functions, such as banks or museums.
