After exploring the colorful neighborhoods of Mexico City, we decided to take a bus ride northeast to the pyramids of Teotihuacan. The ancient city ruins the pyramids were built in was thought to have been established around 100 BC. and was home to around 125,000 people. We learned that these two pyramids are example of Mesoamerican architecture with steps to the top. And up to the top we went!
It was swarming with people, both locals and visitors. Despite the lines, we scaled the ancient stairs to a stunning view of the of the surprisingly intact ruins. The stones had a beautiful pattern that meticulously covered the entire area. Both pyramids, Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon, stood tall and still managed the weight of all the eager climbers.
We couldn't help but admire the timeless and effective design of the pyramids. The craftsmanship of its structure and also the thoughtful placement of its location gives us so much inspiration at Bend to create amazing products worthy to stand the test of time.
Mexico is home to so many beautiful things. We can't wait to go back! And we must mention the food vendors outside of the pyramids, because that mango with chile really hit the spot after the climb!
