Native American fun

Pyramid of the MoonAfter landing in Mexico City I took the subway to my hotel (only $0.20 for the ticket!). I put my stuff there and went to the National Museum of Anthropology. The museum had reconstructions of ancient American cultures and original artifacts. I returned to my hotel early because I was tired.

Today I took a tour to the pyramids of Teotihuacan (I pulled that name out of a hat.... I bought the hat there). The site features two great pyramids for the sun and moon and many smaller pyramid-shaped altars. These pyramids were built by the Aztecs on a site where a more ancient civilization once lived.

This ancient civilization built palaces and mined the volcanic obsidian stone. I bought a small souvenir from this stone and a nice pyramid-shaped key chain.

On the way back we ate lunch at a restaurant with a view of the pyramids and now we're headed back to the hotel.

Our group consisted of four people: A man on business from Venezuela, a couple from Argentina and Texas, and myself. The couple had cameras and took photos for all of us, which they will later e-mail us or post online. I took several pictures with my iPAQ as well, and I plan to post those later.

Tomorrow I will probably walk around the historic center. I'm quite tired now so I will probably rest in this evening.

  2. I have started the Amazon affiliate training in Pakistan for three months for the students who were willing to learn how to start up their own business and this course is going on since the month when I came back from the tour of America. I have enjoyed a lot by watching its pyramids, traveling in the Subways and, none other than the most unique delicious food. If you want to be a part of this class, only one month is left, you can join it now and covered the left remaining topics as wel in extra class arranged by our teachers.

  3. I've been working with accounting and bookkeeping services who want to establish their own business since I returned from my trip of America a month ago. I had a great day seeing the pyramids, riding the subways, and eating the most unique and wonderful food.
