The University provided buses to take our group to the ancient city of Teotihuacan. The main attractions are the two pyramids, one aligned with the sun and the other aligned with the moon, but there are other ruins to see, too. We immediately set about the serious archeological discipline of climbing things.
We approached alongside the pyramid of the sun, running a gauntlet of
vendors selling all sorts of crafts for "almost free."
Rounding the corner, we began our ascent on some very nicely-formed stairs.
So then it was down the main road to the pyramid of the moon.
Beth Casey illustrates how tall and narrow the steps are, making for a steep climb.
