    Temple of the Moon

    June 3 in Mexico

    The Avenue of the Dead runs northwards to the Temple of the Moon. You can only get up some of the Temple as it's not safe to go all the way to the the top of here. The steps are very steep, and high.

    Just to the side of the Avenue, an original painting of a Puma has been preserved on one of the buildings. They reckon the whole complex would have been painted with this red colour, made from the larvae of red ants. That's a hell of a lot of ants.

    The site has a 32km perimeter, and they haven't explored it all yet. At the height of the empire it would have had a population of about 120-200 thousand.

    We got coffee and pastries from a shop down the road, packed up and took an Uber to the Terminal North Bus station. We checked in our big bags and got on a bus to the 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 caught the bus back to Terminal North and caught a different bus to Puebla. The bus went back past the Teotihuacan ruins. We were on it for ages as it was a local bus. When we arrived in Puebla it was raining and we were at a bus stop a long way from the town center. We didn’t know how to get into town and had a bit of trouble getting a taxi, so we ended up on a local collectivo (bus) which was so full and we were standing. We got off near to where we were staying and walked there. The hostel had problems with check in and 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.
