Teuchitlan

Our latest day trip took us an hour outside the city, on a pretty disheveled road to the small town of Teuchitlan. A short stop in the visitors' center and a trying-really-hard-to-be-professional video later, we were off to explore.


What's a Mexican town without a plaza?


But the real reason we went, was to see Guachimontones- circular stepped pyramids from around year 0 A.D. One day, they will have a nice museum there. But for the time being, we just explored the pyramids...

This 13-step pyramid isn't the biggest, but it's the only one you can see fully exposed; not covered in trees, that is.



And around the pyramids are these raised platforms all around where huts used to stand:


Of course we also enjoyed the views...



They sure do know how to pick nice spots!
