Teotihuacán, Mexico – ‘Where Men Become Gods’

Teotihuacan, pronounced teh-oh-tee-wa-KHAN and meaning “The Place Where Men Become Gods” or “Birthplace of the Gods”, is a name given to it by the Nahuatl speaking Aztecs when they discovered the ruins centuries after the city fell.

Guanajuato Hostel – La Casa De Dante

I arrived in Guanajuato feeling a bit under the weather from a bad cold that hit while I was in Morelia. I’m now starting to feel stronger and healthier than I perhaps have ever been!

Museo de las Momias – Guanajuato, Mexico

Yesterday I wandered the winding streets of Guanajuato and eventually made my way all the way up to the mummy museum (Museo de las Momias) located very high on one of the many surrounding hills of Guanajuato overlooking the town. While I’d been warned that it wasn’t for the faint of heart, I think the […]
