New York Times may have spent 36 hours in Merida

And then again they may not have. Nothing new in this New York Times article... It seems they neither wanted or needed my advise...It's about as reliable as Trip Advisor. It would be hardly worth coming to Merida for 36 hours if this is all you did.

YUCATECANS are fiercely proud of their culture, sprinkling their Spanish with Mayan words and quick to recount the stories of resistance and revolution that set this region apart from the rest of Mexico for centuries. Somehow, those tales seem a little distant now in Yucatán’s capital, Mérida, a languid city of pastel mansions and evening promenades. The city, now one of the safest in Mexico, is an architectural jewel, and has one of the country’s largest historic centers outside Mexico City. Block after block of houses dating to the mid-19th century and earlier are in the midst of a restoration boom, and the city’s cultural and restaurant scenes are flourishing.
