Our trip to Mexico City D.F. started out with a visit to the pyramids at Teotihuacan. I've seen pictures of these things and there is no way to capture how awe-inspiring they are. We climbed to the top of the biggest one, the Pyramid of the Sun and behind us you can see the Pyramid of the Moon.
I have to admit that when we were standing at the bottom I was considering sitting on a bench and sipping mango juice instead of attempting all those steep steps. But, thanks to the inspiration of my friend Laurie who taught me that pregnant ladies can still be tough I dragged my over-sized buns up every one of those stairs. I also had a lot of encouragement from Brandon who was hauling Daisy as well as himself. At this point I need to admit that Rocky, at 4 years old also made it to the top, but then again, she is one pretty awesome kid.
Although there really isn't very much known about the people who built these pyramids they do know that there were human sacrifices as part of their ceremonies. That is what these are all about. They were found like this wearing necklaces that are made out of human jaws. You can still see the individual teeth.
