Pyramid of the Sun --view from the top

We would have preferred this video at the end of the Blog but don't know how to move it.  
We realize you can't hear Sherryl's description --sorry! 

"The Pyramid of the Sun is the largest building in Teotihuacan and one of the largest in Mesoamerica. Found along the Avenue of the Dead, in between the Pyramid of the Moon and the Ciudadela, and in the shadow of the massive mountain Cerro Gordo, the pyramid is part of a large complex in the heart of the city." (Wikipedia)

Going up!

View from the first landing.

Getting higher!

The pyramid is not as smooth as it might look.

We didn't count but they saw there are about 250 steps!

Scenic View from the Top

The citadel to the left.

Avenue of the Dead that we just walked.

These two are in front of the pyramid--working to the right.

The Avenue of the Dead continues.

The Avenue of the Dead ends at the Pyramid of the Moon.

Dad and Hermano Ruiz on the top.

Taahhh Daahh!!!!!
And that's what 65 year old people can do!
