Brit in Merida
house renovation and daily life in and around Merida, Yucatan, Mexico

Hello and welcome

My name is Neil Youngson and my travels took me around the world to Mexico, and then around Mexico to Merida and here I bought a house which I’m in the process of renovating; a favourite pastime of expats in these parts. For the next few months this site will be primarily about renovating the house, but with a few pieces about daily life in Yucatan to fill the space when progress is slow. Visit the blog to check on the latest updates.

Feel free to contact me at and blog comments are always welcome.

Thanks for looking.
