"(Diego) Ordaz' s next exploit was to climb the volcano Popocatépetl and he was able from that height to observe and, later, describe the beautiful site of Mexico/Tenochtitlan on its lake. It was the first mountain ascended in the Americas. The Spaniards, therefore, knew which route to take to the Mexican capital. Understandably, ordaz took a volcano as his coat of arms. He lost a finger in the fighting 'on the bridges' in 1520."--- Hugh Thomas : THE AGE OF GOLD.Book I Luke 12:31
