In the morning I am going to the Hacienda Sotuta Peon, a working henequen or sisal plantation that is also a living history exhibition.
It is a popular destination for tourists and the Hacienda just opened its own tour office here in Merida. I went there today and reserved a spot on tomorrow’s tour.
As in was leaving I discovered that they had opened a small shop in the same building to sell products made there out of sisal.
Light weight, interesting, unique, and quite collapsible for easy packing (& CHEAP) I bought a bunch for gifts and it turns out I was the very first customer!
I told them of the American custom of framing the first bill taken in at a new business for luck.
I asked for the $200 peso note I paid with , wrote ¡BUENA SUERTE! on it and signed it.
