  • Day107

    We got coffee and pastries from a shop down the road, packed up and got an Uber to the Terminal North Bus station. We checked in our big bags and got on a bus to Teotihuacan Ruins. The ruins were very big and the Sun Temple is the third largest pyramid in the world. We climbed up to the top which got quite steep in some parts. At the Moon Temple we could only walk up half way but the views back along the Valley of death were quite amazing!
    We then got the bus back to Terminal North and got a different bus to Puebla. The bus went a very long way all the way back past the Teotihuacan ruins. We were on it for ages as it was a local bus. When we arrived in Puebla raining and we were at a bus stop a long way from the centre. We didn’t know how to get into town so had a bit of trouble getting a taxi so we ended up on a local colectivo (bus) which was so full that we were standing up. We got it near to where we staying and walked there. Our hostel has problems with checking in and then giving us the right type of room. After complaining for a while we headed into town for dinner. I had yummy beef tacos and Zoe had a massive salad.

    Avant-hier nous sommes allés voir les ruines de Teotihuacan. Dans ces ruines, il y a deux pyramide​s. Celle du soleil et celle de la lune. Nous n'avions pas le droit d'aller tout en haut de celle de la lune mais on avait quand même une assez belle vue. Sur celle du soleil nous sommes montés tout en haut. C'était super beau et très épuisant.

    Nous ne savons rien sur la civilisation perdue de Teotihuacan. Ils étaient là avant Jésus Christ et ils se sont auto-détruits au VIII ième siècle sans laisser de trace écrite. 

    Les Aztèques ont découvert leurs ruines. Ils en ont fait un site  sacré car ils pensaient que c'était l'endroit où la lune et le soleil étaient nés, et que seuls les dieux avaient pu construire un tel site. Ils se sont inspirés de cet endroit pour tous leurs sites sacrés .
