    Congratulations ! The new format and much more graphic design sensibility is great. Haven't had time to navigate around the whole site, but Calandar is terrific. I think it's hip & jazzy, much more visual - probably good for visitors, nice reflection of the current and expanding Merida lifestyle.

    • Working Gringa 2 years ago

      Thank you, Lucinda! We appreciate your feedback, and let's be honest, especially because it is so positive :-)
