Ready, Get Set... Fly!

My check-list of things to do before I depart on my next trip is nearly complete.  I have even printed off my boarding passes.

Tomorrow morning (at 6 AM!) I leave with a friend for Mérida, Mexico.  That means that we are supposed to be at the airport at 4 AM.  From past experience with early morning flights, I doubt that there will even be anyone at the check-in counters at that hour, but we will follow the rules and be there two hours before departure.  We will fly from Cleveland to Houston.  There we will have a lengthy layover of nearly five hours.  Since there is only one daily flight from Houston to Mérida, I would rather have a long layover than worry about making our connection.

The flight to Mérida used to leave Houston in the evening with arrival around 9 PM.  That schedule has been changed.  Now we depart Houston at 1 PM and arrive in the capital of the Yucatán a little after 3 PM.

So, my next post will be written from the Land of the Maya, where the temperature will be 74 degrees!

  1. I have never been to Merida, but I hear that it is a beautiful but noisy city. Un buen viaje!

    1. Yes, it is a lovely city, and I really don't think it is any noisier than D.F. In fact I would say that one of its greatest charms is its laid back atmosphere.

  2. There's nothing like living in the snowbelt to make one appreciate a Mexican "winter." And I get a good chuckle out of all the folks in DF, dressed in down jackets, scarves, and mittens when it's 55°F outside and I'm wearing a long-sleeve shirt, haha.

    Saludos y buen viaje!

    1. Yes, our first evening here it was a bit cool for the short sleeved shirts that we were wearing, but of course the locals were all wearing jackets!
