I know my blog has been different the last few weeks – lots of words and few photos. It is simply too hot to go adventuring and photographing, but I’ll be back out there as soon as the weather lightens up a bit.
I’m planning to do a series of articles about the Merida Market, which operates on many levels. I’m hoping to have a good map done. If you know of one that exists, please let me know.
Lately I’ve been interested in not only the products for sale at the market, but the skills and crafts you can find there. Goldworkers, who can make what you design, a young woman who makes inexpensive but truly beautiful rings, smiths and all kinds of metalworkers, non-”artistic” carvers, shoemakers, etc. I’m not talking about “artsenias,” but people who make things for everyday use.
