What Do You Like About Summer In Merida?

In the middle of August, you'll be hard pressed to find any self-respecting Meridano of a certain economic class in downtown Merida. Life at the beach is more fun and a lot cooler! Still, for those who live in the centro, the dog days of summer are also quiet days and we kind of like that! Luckily, there are some great films being shown and the usual ongoing events are also still around. By the way, the movie at Hennessy's this Monday night will be As Good As It Gets, starring Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt. Great film.

Oh, and while I'm at it... take our poll!!
