Mexico/Mexico: Teotihuacan (Revisited)
The state of Mexico is home to the grandest of the pre-Colombian civilizations sites – Teotihuacan (Náhuatl for “the place where man becomes god”). At its zenith in the 1st century, Teotihuacan was the largest city in Americas with 125,000 people and the sixth largest in the world. The sprawling city site has a lot of ancient monuments, two of the biggest of which are the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. The Avenue of the Dead runs through the entire city. Teotihuacan was established around 100 BC and lasted until sometime 6th century AD. In the past, you could climb both pyramids to the top, but with COVID that activity is off limits – apparently coronavirus concentrates in the air column just above the pyramids and attacks with vicious ferocity.
