But first things first. We had to get rid of the pram.
The UNESCO World Heritage site of Teotihuacán is one heckuva vast expanse. We came prepped, donning our trusty trek shoes and lugging the daughter's pram. Our minds were conditioned for the arduous climb. Unfortunately, not our torpid limbs. Past the Ciudadela, which by the way is just across the main entrance, I was already panting. You see, after finding a hotel in Mexico City which hubby and I absolutely loved, we spent days slacking in our room. We turned into a couple of sloths.
Even with hundreds of other tourists on site the same time as we were, the atmosphere didn't feel crowded at all. That's how enormous (like, 21 square kilometer enormous) this complex is. The pre-hispanic/pre-Columbian city of Teotihuacán's the former home of more than a hundred thousand people. I imagined foot traffic circling the once vibrantly painted pyramids during the height of its civilization and had goosies just visualizing its old grandeur in my head.
There was no debate about it, the hubby and I both chose to summit Pirámide de la Luna for the sole reason of it bearing our daughter's name. As we approached the pyramid, a group of costumed locals at the northern end of Calzada de los Muertos caught the attention of late arvo visitors wandering nearby. They were soon surrounded in a circle. We seized the opportunity to climb the pyramid while everyone else went down.
Surprisingly, we found ourselves rejoicing. That's one less luggage and we simply felt lighter. It made our transport facile for sure.
