Strolling along Paseo Montejo is a trip back in time. Much of the boulevard is lined with fabulous homes, or quintas, formerly the in-town getaways of the hennequin plantation owners. Some have been thoughtfully restored, others languish in varying states of repair and still others are now commercial establishments. On Sundays, it is closed to vehicular traffic and reserved for walkers, bicyclists, and horse-drawn carriages - a tranquil scene. It isn't Fifth Avenue in New York, nor the Champs d'Elysee of Paris (it reminded me of Andrassy in Budapest) , but it is a stunning reminder of Merida's long and rich history.
