A day in Teotihuacan

Another UNESCO heritage site situated in Mexico, housing the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon is also known as the city of gods, Teotihuacan is the largest Pre-Columbian city in the Americas.
Pyramid of the Sun
Don't let the sun fool you. It was pretty cooling the day we went.
I even regretted slightly i did not bring my jacket along with me. 

Really magnificent architectural that is
 Well, it’s a beautiful place if you love some fine monuments and pyramids. I love this place because despite the ever blue skies, the weather is constantly at 20+/- degC which is a very good weather for scaling all those heights. In my honest opinion, if I were warm and sweaty by the end of the trip I probably wouldn’t feel that this trip was as good as it had been. Not to be vain, but it feels all comfortable and breezy after you scale the top is really one of my nicest experience. 

The entrance
The first sight you will see when you enter the premises.
Peak of the Pyramid. (See small reflector near feet)
It's not exactly long way down.
And you can see craved steps and handrails. They are really safe.
It was not tough to scale the peaks.
This little boy is proof.

Here and there will be some locals selling souvenirs and handicrafts.
There are some stalls around the premises as well.
