We had an amazing day yesterday at Teotihuacan, an ancient Aztec City just outside of Mexico City. The opera helped us arrange a driver who, not only drove us there, served as a tour guide, but at times even walked Colin around in his stroller so we could climb or go places that were not passable with the stroller. He then also took us to the Basilica de Guadalupe and the Plaza de Tres Culturas. Thank you Carlos. We dedicate the entry to you. (He really was great, so if you ever need a driver in Mexico City, we will get you in contact).

The ruins were very impressive. I am sure Brian will have more to say. He was going to do this entry but he is busy with the opera tonight because that is his job. We may have to put up another slide show because we took SOOO many photos. It was such a beautiful day, and things could not have been any better considering we were doing all this with a 1 and 1/2 year old.

Brian and Colin on the Pyramid of the Sun. Colin has been all the way to the top of this pyramid, but he fell asleep before he could climb with us to the Pyramid of the Moon. Maybe we can go back when he is old enough to remember. My Mom can empathize with Colin's young adventures. She was born in Chile, and by the time she was 7, she had literally been all over Latin America (even Cuba) but she does not remember much. So she knows what it will be like for him when we tell him all the places he has been but he does not remember.

On the main street, Calle de los muertos. The Pyramid of the Moon is at the end of the road.

Both the Pyramid of the Sun (larger, to the right) and the Pyramid of the Moon (left) as seen from near the Temple of the Feathered Serpent. Yeah, we will try to add more later (especially as today was kind-of boring).
