Last night we ended up drinking until 4am, due to the bars all being shut we sent out our Latin American friends on a mission to find alcohol.

This morning I was woken up by the idiot above me who was bonucing the bunk around, don't worry I called him prick!!!

After a slow start we decided to get on a tube then bus to the Aztec temples in the north of Mexico City called Teotihuacan. These are the third biggest in the world after the great pyramids in Eygpt and some others in Central mexico that haven't been exivated.

I've made lots of friends at this hostel and will be sad to leave. I've teamed up with Felicity, a 23 year old medical student. We are going in the same direction so will probably share the journey. This might be trouble as we get into space cadet mode sometimes, already missed tube stops and walked the wrong direction down streets.

We got to the temples around lunch time. The site wasn't destroyed by cortes like Templo Mayor in the heart of the city and they are still finding new treasures in the area. The Crazy Aztecs built the pyramids in layers, therefore some carvings are still being found.

The biggest pyramid is the the Pyramid of the Sun and a really step climb. The pyramid of the moon is also massive and around are many smaller temples.

We waited for a while on top of Pyramid of the Sun as a storm was coming from the distant and it had great views, then back to the city.

The election results are coming out know, apparently if one guy loses he is going to call for a revolution, time to get out the city!!! I did wonder around the Zocalo this evening and I saw no trouble, it was more of a party atmoshere, therefore I'm sure everything will be find.

Aztec canals tomorrow....cooooolllllll
