Despite the sore legs, dusty shoes, and sunburns, we had such a fun time visiting the pyramids at Teotihuacán. The day started with a long bus ride full of singing songs in both Spanish and English. When we finally arrived, our tour guides, Carol Baur students, separated us into three groups. In these groups, we started to learn about the culture and history of the abandoned city. Though we don’t know who built these ruins, we know bits and pieces of the unfinished puzzle. We know that these are temples rather then tombs like they are in Egypt. Experts believe that the city was built 1 year after Christ. And every structure was built in the place it sits today for a very specific reason: the pyramids revolve around the Sun pyramid, just as the planets in the solar system revolve around the sun as well.  As the trip drew to a close, we all had the chance to eat delicious popsicles and do some last minute shopping of trinkets and souvenirs. The day ended as we got back on the bus and headed back to Carol Baur.
