We visit some minor attractions and then go to the church of the Lady of Guadalupe.
We take the Panama highway for 48 kms north. The Panama highway is paid by the American government and runs from the far south of South America to Alaska. BUT: minor problem: a accident happened on the other side and there are traffic jams, also in our direction. We are amazed!!!! The cars on the other sides (AND huge tour buses) make a detour (on the highway) and drive back on the emergency lane: no kidding!
This was the city of the priests, no none religious people were allowed in here. Hector says very proudly, that they stopped all human sacrifices 200 AD. Their favourite sacrifice (do not read this, Kris and Annick) was: lighting a fire, putting jalapeņos peppers in it, which made
By now I already have to give in: Dr T was right to take a guided tour, Hector is great and we could not have done all this on our own!
The pyramids of the sun and the moon are here as famous as the pyramyds in Egypt in Europe. They are said to be as old, as high and as interesting. (796,807). And it is breath taking, I know a certain archeologist who would have had a .rgasm, right, Broekske??
Hector gives us the the final facts on the side an we go for a meal. I have a typical mexican dish, made in a 'lava' pot. They call it spicy, but it is not.
It was almost 18h when we are back, we need a shower, I talk to you guys, go for a simple meal and bed!!! The pyramids were demanding. apart from the climb up and down, there was a 3 miles walk on very uneven grounds.
I will get back to you soon. I still did not tell you about the feel, smell, people, strange things and the characteristics of Mexico City!
