The images above and to the left are from Merida en Domingo on July 25, 2004. This is a street festival that is held every Sunday in the main square or zocalo of Mérida. Every last Sunday of the month there is a special 2-hour dance with 2 bands playing classic Cuban music of the 40's-50's, danzon, mambo, and more. This couple is the king and queen of the dance -- they form part of a group of regulars that you can see dancing every Tuesdays nights in Santiago Park to Cuban danzon, Saturdays on Calle 60 to salsa, and Sundays in the Zocalo to cumbia.
