No worries my friends, I am still here. It’s been a rocky road down the path of IT but I feel like I am finally making it. It’s time to get down to some fruitful stories. Being a “fresa”, I think a lot of us still embrace a lot of the wonderful things like customs and.. the hammock from indigenous culture.
One of my favourite places to go on holiday within my own country, is Merida. It’s the birth place of the hammock, at least the Mexican kind. In fact, I’ve tried a lot of different hammocks in my life time.. including from Thailand for example. But nothing beats a good hammock from the outskirt villages near Merida.
In fact, it’s even difficult to find a really well made one. Even if you are Mexican! But what’s really interesting about this place, is that whenever you rent an apartment it comes ready with S-hooks. You know, the kind that keeps the hammock rocking.. not just keeps the hammock up but also gives a soothing effect that just puts you to sleep.
In fact, I am not so much into “outdoor use” as in the west. I prefer to just sleep on it, instead of a bed. That’s really one of the marvels of Mexico!!
