    Teotihuacán

    September 1, 2016 in Mexico ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Als letzte Ruinenstadt und archäologische Stätte besuchten wir das knapp 2000 Jahre alte Teotihuacán 50 km nordöstlich von Mexico City. Auf diesem einstigen 20 Quadratkilometer großen Areal bewunderten wir die im Zentrum stehende, erklimmbare, drittgrößte Pyramide der Welt "Templo del Sol" in ihrer wuchtigen Pracht samt Gegenpart "Templo de la Luna" und huldigten ein letztes Mal den Gottheiten Quetzalcóatl, Tláloc, Quetzalpapálotl und Huitzilopochtli ;)Read more

    Piramides Teotihuacán

    November 8, 2015 in Mexico ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Regen und Wolken waren angekündigt; wir entschieden uns trotzdem zu den Pyramiden nahe der Hauptstadt zu fahren. Durch das Wetter wirkte die grosse, über 2500 Jahre alte Azteken-Stätte noch mystischer.
    Zudem besuchten wir die Basilika De Santa Maria De Guadalupe mit dem berühmten Bild 'Our Lady of Guadalupe', welche via Rollband besichtigt werden kann (so kann niemand vor dem Bild stehen bleiben, sondern fährt daran vorbei - witzig!)Read more

    Piramides de Teotihuacan #1

    July 29 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    La pirámide del Sol se ve imponente desde la taquilla de la zona arqueológica, en donde hay que pagar $75 MXN por persona (13500 COP). En la entrada del lugar existen guías que puedes contratar, pero son costosos, uno nos estaba cobrando 1000 MXN (180000 COP) por un recorrido guiado de 2 horas. Sin embargo no es necesario.

    Al lugar acude muchos turistas y es muy grande, por lo que es importante llegar temprano y estar listo para caminar bastante.

    Pirámides de Teotihuacan #2

    July 29 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    En el lugar existen varias pirámides, pues se trataba de una especie de plaza de pueblo. Los Aztecas se apropiaron de las pirámides luego de hallar las abandonadas. La arquitectura y los sistemas de construcción Teotihuacanos son muy alabados por su ingeniosidad.

    En el sitio se destaca:
    + La pirámide del Sol
    + La pirámide de la Luna
    + La calzada de los muertos
    + El templo de la serpiente emplumada.

    Teotihuacan

    May 18, 2015 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 64 °F

    On Monday I went on a day tour to the prehispanic city of Teotihuacan (Náhuatl is one of the coolest-sounding languages...) and other sites. On the way, we visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

    Teotihuacan is located 40 km outside the city in the state of Mexico. Once there, we climbed to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun and a couple smaller pyramids. The Pyramid of the Sun has 200-some steep stone steps and is not for the faint of heart, especially in the scorching sun! At the top we could see a panoramic view of the surrounding valley. It's overwhelming to think that these impressive structures were built around 2000 years ago.

    Another interesting thing on the tour was the visit to a silver shop. The guide also showed us all the incredible uses of the maguey plant. These plants of the agave family are enormous, and grow flowering stalks up to 8 meters tall. It can be used for paper, fibers/thread, needles, roofing, pulche alcoholic drink, and as a vegetable (nopales).

    Teotihuacan - Night Experience

    June 28 in Mexico ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    I was really happy when i secured tickets for this event back in May.
    I was not sure what to expect and it was hard to find reviews.
    Arriving just on dusk, it was getting cold and i was poorly equipped, but as the sun went down and i could see the lights turning on and shining onto the pyramid of the sun i was able to forget the chill in the air.
    Entering after dark, and getting my English audio guide, when i entered and looked up the Avenue of the Dead and saw the ruins glowing in light it was an awesome moment.
    It really looked amazing.
    As i walked up the avenue and heard the history of the site, which i had forgotten long ago, i remembered how mysterious it all was.
    For the first time i saw the stars "in Mexico city", and the light show, all made the experience incredibly unforgettable.
