Xochicalco: ornate temples and solar tricks - John Mitchell/Mexico Herald

http://www.mexiconews.com.mx/miami/16104.html

"The highway running south from Cuernavaca snakes past endless sugarcane fields, roadside stands piled high with freshly cut roses, and towns with tongue-twisting names that hark back to pre-Hispanic times. Before long, the ancient ruins of Xochicalco come into view, perched like a fortress high on a hill overlooking lush valleys and shimmering lakes."

Post by natour »
