Two Rocks and a Bird!

Here it is, two posts with one bird and something about a rock or however that saying goes. Here are two weekends worth of photos! And you can download them as your background for only $39.99!!! What a bargain!

Here is the one trip to the Teotihuacan Pyramids. These are located just a little North of Mexico City and very far from Egypt. These things are super-old and made by the Aztec people from some sort of material, probably rock. I could continue with my vast knowledge of these impressive triangles, but if you really want to know you can click this: Teotihuacan.

Here is the view from The Pyramid of the Moon 
It's been over two months and they still haven't noticed I'm not from Germany. Also the Moon Pyramid is in the background

Pretty cool view from The Pyramid of the Sun

Tried convincing some people that the whole place was a hoax and was actually  built by the Mexican government back in the 80's to encourage more tourism

These things are pretty steep

This is the Pyramid of the Sun, the larges Pyramid in Mexico and I think the 3rd largest in the world.

Here is from the following weekend. Almost all the Germans went back to Germany so it was just Ingo and I. This time we travelled a little more North-East of Puebla to a tiny little town called Cuetzalan. This place also has some old pyramids in the middle of what I think is called a cloud forest.
Small little town outside of Cuetzalan where you can see the Pyramids

Path heading to the Pyramids

Blurry picture of a flower that looks super cool

This place totally has the bear necessities!

Here are the Pyramids of Yohualichan not quite as big but still pretty neat. Also one of the first times I saw grass in Mexico

I could totally make an awesome fort out of these things!

Small little market where you can buy trinkets, spices, and of course Tacos!

I never got a good picture, but these guys will literally plant corn anywhere. Most the people that live in the rural area are very traditional and don't use gas or electricity in their homes.

Small waterfall in the Jungle. There were most likely sharp rocks at the bottom.

For being a jungle it was surprisingly quite and still.

Las Grutas and other things

It's taken me awhile to post this Oops! Totally because of work and stuff, defiantly not because I've been lazy. A couple of weekends ago my German buddies and I went up to a place called Tolantongo in the state of Hildalgo. I'm still feeling a little lazy and will just assume that I spelled that correctly. Tolantongo is a pretty gorgeous place. As far as I understand there's some kind of volcanic activity underground and after some help of pixie magic and that sort of stuff it results in hot springs in the middle of this so called semi-arid desert. Pretty wonderful place to chill and have a couple of tacos.

Getting there was a little sketchy, this was courtesy of Google Maps
I'm sure this place has a name. Tolantongo is at the bottom of this valley

One of the Magical sources of water, Behind the waterfall are a couple of caves full of warm water you can chill in.

Bum bada bum bada bum ba bum ba bum (Jurassic park theme)

Some of the hot pools on the side of the mountain

Picture of some banana trees I took from the tent, I believe at this area is considered a semi-tropical forest
Selfie with my German buddy!

Enjoying the warm water inside a small gruta

Once we cross this bridge it's only and hour to the palace.

Hoping to get on the front cover of Travel Mexico Magazine
