Photo of the Week: Teotihuacán

These pre-Columbian ruins are a photographer’s dream

Last week, I began a new feature – the Photo of the Week – in which I simply share one image from my own travels, with very little explanation given. This week’s photo is from the ruins of Teotihuacán, an ancient pre-Columbian city outside of Mexico City, where I took a group of students back in 2009. It’s really a fascinating place that I’ll have to write about at another time.

    1. The last time I was there was in 2009, and then you could climb both the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. I seem to recall someone who was there more recently tell me that at least one of those is now off limits, although I hope that’s not the case. The Pyramid of the Sun, seen in the distance, is quite tall and a little precarious. The Pyramid of the Moon is smaller, but the view is much better. This photo was taken from there. Thanks for visiting and commenting!


  1. Thanks for this too, I was there back in 1982 or 83. I was around 12 then, and climbing was no problem. But now that I’m a father of two kids of almost that age, you can bet I’d be worried, especially on the way back down! Must take them some day. Saludos!

    1. Yes, going back down was more treacherous than going up! Do take your kids sometime. That would be a great experience for them. I think I’ll be taking mine to Chichén Itzá later this month, if things go according to plan. I don’t think I’ll be doing any climbing, though. ¡Saludos!
