The place:
Mérida is the capital city of the Mexican state (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/States_of_Mexico) of Yucatán (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucat%C3%A1n). It is located in the northwest part of the state, about 35 km (22 miles) from the Gulf of Mexico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_Mexico) coast, at 20°58′12″N, 89°37′12″W (http://kvaleberg.com/extensions/mapsources/index.php?params=20_58_12_N_89_37_12_W_). In 2003 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003) the population was about 793,000, ranking 11th among the most populous Mexican cities.
Mérida was built in the 16th century (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16th_century) by orders of the Montejo family of Spanish Conquistadores (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conquistador) over the Maya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_civilization) city of Ti'ho, also known as Ichcaanzihó or land of the great “sihoes” which had existed for centuries earlier. Some carved Maya stones from ancient Ti'ho are still visible reused in some Spanish Colonial buildings. Some Maya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_peoples) still use the ancient name Ti'ho when referring to Mérida. Much of Mérida's architecture from the Colonial period, through the 18th century (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/18th_century) and 19th century (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/19th_century) is evident in the central portion of the city. From colonial times through the mid 19th century (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/19th_century) Mérida was a walled city to protect the Spanish and Ladino residents from periodic revolts by the indigenous Maya. Several of the old Spanish city gates survive, but modern Mérida has expanded well beyond the old city walls. Late in the 19th century and the early 20th Century, the area surrounding Mérida enriched becaused of the production of henequen (known as sisal in English, because it was exported from the port of Sisal, which for most of the 19th century was the most important port in the State). A legacy of those times are several European-style houses, that still survive in the city, specially in the north side, close to Colon, Montejo and Perez Ponce avenues. After the decay of the crop, the area suffered strongly for the decay of sisal, which has very limited importance today.

Jennifer's a former NCAA player for the Florida Gators (played doubles with Zerene Reyes there), and was supposed to play this season as their #1 singles and was also listed as the pre-season #1 player. She ended up changing her mind and graduating early in January in order to play pro though, and looks like she's off to a pretty impressive start already :)
