In Mexico, thousands of people travel to Teotihuacan (and other sites around the country) to celebrate the spring equinox (usually around March 20). In particular, they go to the Pyramid of the Sun (La Pirámide del Sol) and stretch out their arms towards the sun. Furthermore, the sun’s rays are said to hit a particular point on top of the pyramid, which many visitors touch to absorb the sun’s energy.
For a first-time visitor to Mexico, Teotihuacan is definitely worth your time.
On a separate note, please send out your prayers to Mexico in hopes that everyone is safe after today’s 7.4 earthquake. Espero que todos estén a salvo..
For those of us who love to travel, the list of places to visit can be daunting. Moreover, the expenses of traveling can be quite formidable. Fortunately with the advent of HD video, we can whet our appetites with some great video montages.
