City of Campeche, old Town.
Capital of the state of Campeche.
It's surrounded by huge walls.
They had corsairs raid them back in the day.

Old customs due hard, men still go shopping, corsairs would rape women so men would do the shopping at the market.

Default "vaya" has nuances...

...as does "voila". In my interpretation I used it to express the concept of "alright, we're good to go!"

As the title of the previous post suggests, vaya has nuances, and is a ubiquitous word with different connotations depending on context and tone of voice. It can mean “OK”, “alright”, “there you go”, “See, I was right!”, “That’s settled, then”, etc. etc. As well as it’s literal meaning of “Go”, as in “Vaya con Dios” or “Qué te vaya bien”. It is also often used with pues as in “Vaya pues” or “Va’ pues”.

For completeness, and to be pedantic, "Vaya" is the first and third person singular subjunctive of the verb to go, "ir". This is clearest in the expression Lagloo mentioned, "Qué te vaya bien", which is short for "Espero or ojalá qué te vaya bin". So the subjunctive is required for the verb in the dependent clause.

In my personal experience, "Vaya." could mean a single formal command meaning "Go." Or, like my mom used to use the word, "Vaya." meaning "Oh, I see." As in finally understanding something.

This technically isn’t a photo from Mexico. It was taken in my kitchen in Toronto, made by my Mexican husband - looking, smelling and tasting like a little piece of Mexico way up North. ¡Buen provecho!
