I visit the city of Teotihuacan,
many years ago. Its so monumental, that one can not
describe the big impression, it leaves in our hearts. It is a precolumbian city, that means, that was built long before the spaniards
came to America,
for their conquest. No one exactly knows who built this city..
It is says, Teotihuacan was one of the biggest
culture, in the Anahuac- Vally (the highlands in
Some people think, they existed before the toltecs,
and before the aztecs, which arrived at the lake
of Texcoco, long after many cultures
lived already at the shores of the Lake
When I saw it for the first time, I was one my way by
train from Palenque towards the Mexico City. It was a long
journey, since Palenque is in Chiapas,
south part of Mexico,
and is nearly 500 km
from the capital. Teotihuacan is just 45 km, from the city of Mexico.
We travel the whole night and we should arrived in Mexico
around eleven o´clock the next morning. Around 9 o´clock I saw a unendless field with cactus, they were around 3 mts. high
and one saw cactus all the way till the mountains...
Suddendly I saw a huge montain in the middle of the whole plateau, incredible.
The only thing, it was, "too perfect". "Too big for being made
by man" - I though - "and too perfect
form,for being, just a mountain".
So, I should learn, it later... It was the sun piramide of Teotihuacan,
which I saw on my way to Mexico.
Some weeks later, we visit this ancient city... of course, we climb the
"Sun and Moon piramids" we walk the
whole "Street of the death", and we visit the temple to
Quetzalcoatl = feather snake...
The legend of Quetzalcoatl, it was said, there was a man-god-priest, who lived
among the people, and some people believe, lived with the toltecs.
This highpriest didn´t like human sacrifices, and so on... and the others
didn´t like the influence, he had. So they put him a trap... they gave
him something to drink, which make him drunk (this was something, which was
punish) and they make him believe he abused of a woman. So he had to leave the
city... and the human sacrifices, came back.
