Heat! Lots of it! This is how we can define the weather around here. After several weeks between the cold and "so so", we can finally say it's hot! And today was really for toastin', we spent the whole day "outdoors". We started by visiting the Plaza de Las 3 Culturas (3 Cultures Square), an archeological site that reflects 3 important steps in the history of Mexico: prehispanic, colonial and contemporary. We then went on to visit Guadalupe's Basilica, kind of Mexico's Fatima (Fatima is a world famous catholic site in Portugal). Finally, for the great attraction of the day, we left town and headed to Teotihuacan, the name given by the mexicans and that means "The place where the Gods were made". This aztec archeological site is mainly composed by the Sun and Moon Pyramids, the Path of the Dead, the Jaguars' Palace and the Temple of Quetzalcátl. Teotihuacan was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.
