Jim: Mérida here I come

May 12, 2010

A few people have asked about where Mérida is, so – here it is! Mérida is in the Northern part of Venezuela (West by NW, I suppose). It is near the top of the Andes, just South of Lake Maracaibo. Even though it is pretty close to the equator, the altitude keeps the climate reasonable – a little on the warm side, but not too bad if you aren’t spending your days splitting wood or working in attics. 5,348 ft in altitude. As a point of reference, Denver is at 5,280 ft (close) & Minneapolis is at 830 ft (not so close).

Que lastima – ¡Hasta luego!
