TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Mision de Fray Diego Merida
Loved, loved the Mision de Fray Diego. It's located about 1 1/2 blocks from the main square in Merida. Our room was incredible, we were in one of the "special" rooms. It really is as pretty as all the pictures. Once you get into the courtyard you would never know you are in the heart of a bustling city. The food in the restaurant was very good. We wound up eating breakfast & dinner there everyday since it was good, quiet, not too expensive, and so beautiful. The staff was helpful. The only reason I am not giving this hotel 5 stars is that our bedspread was a bit tattered. It didn't bother me, but it's an easy fix, so it should be fixed.

I think he was perhaps expecting somebody with a better grip of Spanish but despite me understanding perhaps only 20% of what he was saying, we managed to converse for a few hours on some fairly ...
... held the ball, Cobb would get two bases on a walk.
We are not told how often this was pulled off successfully -- a statistic that is probably irrecoverable. Even if just once, it's a brilliant example of cleverness and bravado. Given today's scouting and communication it's hard to imagine it working twice, but things were different back then. And a century later I think it might be worth trying one more time, and I would love to see ...
... they were from and the Translator made a joke...at my expense! An old goat said he was from Canada, the Translator noting he took time to admit it!
Our guide pointed out everybody in Merida ends a sentence with 'ha'. He analogized it to Canucks using 'eh' at the end of a sentence. Everybody looked at me: not this Canuck.
Merida used to be known as the 'White City' as houses in the early last century were always painted white. When the Spaniards ...
... I managed to kind of get by. Mr Brazil explained the history of football in his country, and how the Corinthians team was started by a former a British colony.
We then got onto other topics, and he said how he worked at the Bank of Brazil. After revealing that I had just graduated in Economics, he revelled in telling me how the country will prosper. "What about China, or India?" I asked, to which he responded, in a ...
