Thank YOU, dear Christi.
Indeed, the parade took place harmoniously despite the crowd.

MUXES

Oaxaca State. A small indigenous community of individuals known as Muxes continue to challenge almost every Western idea
of gender identity. Muxes seek to live free of labels like male and female.

These sets are a beautiful homage to open-mindedness and tolerance, Roberto. I found that piece about the muxes very interesting. And the unfolding cult of Frida Kahlo, in spite of its occasional excesses, shows that the great female artist is now quite capable of reaching the heights of cultural acceptance and posthumous celebrity as her male equivalents.

You're right. Last weekend I went with two dear cousins from Los Angeles to the Blue House of Frida Kahlo. Because of "Fridamania" we were three
hours in line to enter. Even people who had bought their tickets online had to wait a long time.

Teotihuacan Archaeological Zone - Part II

I had promised more photos of Teotihuacan. Last Monday I had the opportunity to return to that beautiful archeological site.

Teotihuacán is the largest pre-Hispanic site in the Americas and one of the most visited cultural sites in Mexico.



México - Teotihuacan Archaeological Site

It is not well known who built the pyramids of Teotihuacán. It is presumed that they were the Toltec ancestors of the Aztecs;
although another theory points rather to the Totonacas.



México - Teotihuacan Archaeological Site

The city was built 100 years before Christ and was conceived to be made on the scale of the gods and not on the scale of man.

When the Aztecs saw Teotihuacan for the first time, the city was already abandoned and in ruins.

The city of Teotihuacan was one of the largest urban centers in the ancient world, which reached a population somewhat higher
than 100,000 inhabitants at its peak.

The archeological vestiges of the ancient city are visited every year by thousands of people, making the site one of the largest
tourist attraction poles in the country.

The area open to the public has an area of 264 hectares, where the main complexes of monumental buildings are concentrated:
The Citadel and the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the Causeway of the Dead and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon.


The Temple of Quetzalcoatl (cannot show last time) is one of the most beautiful buildings in pre-Hispanic Mexico.

Bonus

The locals say that this beautiful dog is wild and that she feeds on squirrels and rabbits (the strange thing is that she does not
attack people). The truth is that she must be a terrible hunter because her extreme thinness can be appreciated. However, she
went up and down the pyramid with great agility.

Finally, the Causeway of the Dead and the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon.


México - Teotihuacan Archaeological Site
by francerobert2001, en Flickr

The Pyramid of the Sun is the largest building in Teotihuacan and one of the largest in Mesoamerica. It is located on the
Causeway of the Dead.

The Pyramid of the Moon is located in the northern part of Teotihuacán. It is the second largest building in Teotihuacán, after
the Pyramid of the Sun.

Stunning! I find Teotihuacan Archaeological Zone as compelling as Egypt or any other antiquity, if not more, because of its uniqueness. Would really like to experience in real life one day.

Fun fact: the grand flight of steps of the main building here influenced the design of the grand flight of steps of the Sydney Opera House as far as I recall. Thanks for showing Gratteciel.
