Only in Mexico, perhaps, could a mini-revolution almost occur over a road construction project. But that's exactly what happened last July 4 . . . a rather ironical date. For the facts, click here, visit my blog for more photos.
The project was completed late last week, and last night (October 9) many thousands of Méridans turned out to enjoy its inauguration. Yucatán governor Ivonne Ortega and Mérida mayor Angelica Arajuo attended
and delivered brief remarks to the very excited crowd. From groundbreaking to ribbon cutting, the work was completed in just over 14 weeks. Lots of music, street dancing and family fun -- plus fireworks. Enjoy, and visit soon.
