I visited Teotihuacan a few years ago during a family trip to Mexico. It was absolutely incredible. Really solidified my desire to someday place my area of emphasis for my Archaeology career in Mesoamerica.

Thanks! I was going to wear my Indy gear but I didn't want to look like a huge geek. I did wear my Skyfall jacket though!

Awesome pictures, I was just in Mexico in February and I visited the Maya site of Chichen Itza. So many amazing places to visit in Mexico.

Awesome!

And that Skyfall jacket of yours looks neat as well.

Hope you had in mind that Indy went to Teotihuacan in "Indiana Jones and the Infernal machine"




regards

CJ

As do I! I visited a Mexican friend of mine also Summer 2016 in fact, he took me to Teotihuacan, various places around CDMX, and also did a tour to Cuernavaca and the amazing 'city of silvermines' Taxco de Alarcón. The Santa Prisca church in the center of mountain city Taxco is a must-see, if only for the 9 floor-to-ceiling extremely detailed altarpieces in gold. "Fortune and glory" alright .

Chichén Itzà is a big one to do still, but I really have my eye on Palenque.

P.S. Did you see some of the archaeological work being done near the Temple of the Plumed Serpent at Teotihuacan? They were excavating a tunnel that runs underground from the open square in front, but they said it's not clear to what other locations on the site it connected to...

UPDATE: Okay so the Mexican archaeological surveyors have also found a previously unknown series of tunnels near the Temple of the Moon earlier this Summer > http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2...chaeology-spd/

Will be interesting to follow up the findings!
Mexico will definitely be a spot I'll travel to soon again.
