Photographer's Note

The ruins of the ancient Aztec city of Teotihuacán are so huge that there was nothing comparable in Europe at the time that Hernán Cortés arrived to the "New Spain".

What we see in the picture is the sight from the top of the Pyramid of the Moon (la pirámide de la Luna), having on the left hand side the biggest pyramid of the archeologycal site; the pyramid of the Sun (la pirámide del Sol), and right in from of us the "street of the Dead" (La Calzada de los Muertos), which takes several kilometers of the area.

I wanted to post this picture, as I still have in my mind how small I felt at that moment, and I think those turists on the foreground can express that feeling much better than I would do it myself.
