    Archaelogical Sitio Tula

    July 16, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Yeah! Ruins!!!!!! My most favourite part of Mexico.
    It was an early start, getting to the bus station for 8am. Travelling more or less 2 hours to Tula, a small little town north of Mexico city.
    I was going solely for the ruins.
    And the site was small but i still got 1000 photos, and spent a good 2 hours walking around.
    I am starting to wish i had taken up archaeology as a profession so that i could really delve into the sites, but for the time being i will have to settle for taking photos and reading the information boards.
    The most fascinating part of these ruins are the carved Toltec warrior columns, which sit atop one of the pyramids.
    With links to both Teotihuacan and Chitzen Itza (which are literally decades apart) it's a very interesting little site.

    A Pyramid in Tula & More to Come

    February 3, 2016 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We stopped at the archeological site in Tula de Allende for our first introduction to pre-Aztec pyramids and the impressive stonework associated with them - at this site large warrier statues, likely an indication of the importance of war in the Toltec culture. The rest of the ride to Teotihuacan was marked with narrow roads, over 100 topes, the crazy Mexcian drivers we have heard about for so long, streams running black with pollution and a thermoelectric plant belching smoke and particulates. Needless to say we understood why many people we talked to recommended taking a bus on the roads within a 100 km radius of Mexico City. We were glad to share this challenging day with another couple as we all questioned travelling by bike, but together we made it safely to Teotihuacan and found a cheap hotel for the night. It was a much needed luxury after a challenging day, and all the more so because Karl had some stomach troubles developing despite all of our efforts to filter water daily as we pass by Pemex gas stations.Read more
