We spent three weeks honeymooning, twenty-one glorious days on the Yucatán peninsula with only the barest of itineraries to rein us in. In my husband's hometown of Mérida, we stayed in a converted monastery and spent most evenings wandering downtown, trying cafes and restaurants, then meandering to any of the small, open air concerts that seemed to take place almost nightly. And then one evening, the crowd was larger, more expectant. We gently pushed ourselves to a place we could stand without blocking anyone else's view. On a low stage, local dancers wearing traditional Mexican dresses twirled and spun like the most beautiful toy tops imaginable. It took my breath away and remains, to this day, one of my favorite memories of that city.
