    Piramides de Teotihuacán

    February 15, 2017 in Mexico

    Die prähistorische Stadt Teotihuacán ist UNESCO Weltkulturerbe und besteht heute im Wesentlichen aus zwei großen Pyramiden: Die Sonnenpyramide (Pirámide del Sol) und die Mondpyramide (Pirámide de la Luna), die durch die "Straße der Toten" verbunden sind.
    Früher (um das Jahr 0) lebten hier Zehntausende Menschen und die Stadt war die größte und bedeutendste Amerikas.

    Teotihuacan

    May 18, 2015 in Mexico

    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).

    Teotihuacán

    August 5, 2017 in Mexico

    ¡Qué lindo día! He visitado la famosa ciudad en ruinas de América. Teotihuacán se encuentra cerca de la Ciudad de México y cuenta para el patrimonio cultural mundial de la UNESCO. La pirámide más grande se llama Sunpyramid. Desde Sunpyramid, puedes ver toda la ciudad. Fue bastante agotador clime todas las escaleras, pero la vista desde arriba era increíble.

    Teotihuacan, Sonnen- und Mondpyramide

    November 19, 2016 in Mexico

    Heute besichtigten wir die Ausgrabungen von Teotihuacan, der größten präkolumbianischem Stadt Mesoamerikas.
    Wer diese Stadt ab dem 1. Jh. nach Chr. angelegt hat, weiß man nicht. Schon die Azteken fanden die Stadt verlassen vor.

    Wir bestiegen die Mond- und die Sonnenpyramide. Diese ist mit 220 x 220 Metern Grundfläche und gut 70 Metern Höhe die drittgrößte Pyramide der Welt.
