Teotihaucan

Located about 25 miles northeast of Mexico City are the ancient ruins of Teotihaucan, now an archaeological and UNESCO World Heritage site. From Mexico City we took an hour bus ride to Teotihaucan, which was busy with tourists even on a week day. It was worth it, though. The site is remarkably preserved and maintained. It's also massive. You could easily spend an entire day exploring it. I did my best to capture the scale of these towering pyramids, but I'm not sure that I did it justice.

Main takeaway: Humans are remarkable. I can't believe people were able to building thriving, complex metropolises with nothing but their muscles, minds, and rudimentary tools.

Mexico City

Last summer I flew down to Mexico to meet up with my brother, who had been teaching English there for a semester. Despite living near the Mexico border for a number of years, I had actually never made it to the country before. I missed all the typical touristy beaches and sketchy Tijuana escapades and went straight for the mega metropolis that is Mexico City.

I'm not sure what I was expecting. I think I honestly hadn't thought much about what Mexico City would be like. I went because my brother wanted to show me the city, and not because I had ever really thought about going before. However, I quickly realized why he'd fallen in love with the place. We stayed at an Airbnb in the trendy Condesa neighborhood, which was composed of meandering tree-lined streets that intersected at lush gardens and parks. It was all kinds of delightful: old rambling colorful homes decked out with wrought iron and stonework interspersed with modern boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Gourmet coff…
