Video: The surrealistic climb to the mountaintop above Teotihuacan
After thumbing through the book, “Sun Circles and Human Hands,” the internationally famous archaeologist, Dr. Román Piña-Chan, immediately recognized that there was direct connection between the Mayas and Etowah Mounds in Georgia. He then instructed me to spend a week at Teotihuacan, after I finished a week exploring the Museo Nacional de Antropologia.
There are some things one just cannot explain with logic or rigorous research into historical archives. A dream that I had repeatedly in the summer that I turned 18, because reality in the summer that I turned 21. What it all meant, I am still not certain. Join me on journey up an extinct 10,000 feet high volcano by seeing the views that I captured with color slides. When I returned home late that evening to my newly adopted Mexican family, no one believed where I had been. They all assumed that I had met a hot chick at Teotihuacan and then gone to a sleazy hotel to sow some wild oats. Señora Soto said she was relieved. She had been worried about me because I didn’t go to brothels and get drunk like normal guys my age. She promised not to tell Alicia, the respectable Spanish señorita, who I had met a week earlier at the high school graduation of one of the Soto’s daughters. Señora Soto said that she would call Alicia in the morning and tell her that my bus had broken down on the way back to Mexico City.
