Julia, Suzan, and I drove up to Teotihuacan to check out the pyramids. Teotihuacan, a huge city of the ancient world, was founded before the Christian era and grew to a population of 125,000 people. According to the book "Eyewitness Travel Mexico" "It [Teotihuacan] dominated life in the region for 500 yeas before being destroyed (possibly by its own people) and abandoned, around AD 650. Later, the site was heled sacred by the Aztecs, who believed it had been built by giants. The ceremonial center, with its temples, palaces, and pyramids, bears witness to the city's splendor but has revealed little about its creator and inhabitants. Their origin, way of life, and even demise remain a mystery."
