Teotihuacán time

With the help of one of David’s cousins, Sara (pictured lower right), I checked off a bucket-list item: the pyramids of Teotihuacán!

The Pyramids of the Sun (Sol) and the Moon (Luna) are the major attractions at this massive archaeological site, located northeast of Mexico City. Though the city was established around 100 AD, it took over 150 years to construct the monuments we know today.

I learned from Sara that these pyramids are almost perfectly aligned latitudinally with others in Egypt and China. Interesting, no?
