Day 1 in Merida
Day one Merida, Yucatan
We have arrived in Merida! The birthplace of once a passionate vision for sustainability to now our reality. The city is filled with Mayan culture and indigenous pride. The people of Merida greet us with warm smiles and authentic food. As we explore the city, we take the time to learn more about this region of Mexico. We visit state parks where wildlife thrives under the care of the local Yucatecos. We also visit Progreso, a town along the coast. Here we meet Candido, an artisan whose family is dedicated to making hand made palma bags. Each bag is crafted thoroughly and uniquely. Every stich different from the last. We then exchange information with Candido, in hopes of creating a reliable and sustainable partnership with him. Day 1 comes to an end.
