Teotihuacan, Mexico - (detail of tserpents on temple) Temple of the Feathered Serpent is the modern-day name for the third largest pyramid at Teotihuacan, a pre-Columbian site in central Mexico. In the 1980s more than a hundred possibly-sacrificial victims were found buried beneath the structure. The burials, like the structure, are dated to some time between 150 and 200 CE.
Take a day trip to Teotihuacan to see the ancient pyramids, wander around Frida Kahlo’s house and admire her art collection, and hire a boat to tour the Xochimilco Canals—apparently you can take beers out with you, and for lunch, little rafts float nearby, preparing homemade tacos.
∆...Teotihuacan, Mexico - Pyramid of the Moon. My husband and I climbed this in 2012. The 'stairs' are very, very steep and made of blocks approximately 18" in height. The rope in the center is for hanging on and pulling yourself up!
