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.
