I think it’s beautiful! I’ve long been fascinated with the Aztecs, Mayans and Incans. Unfortunately, I never got to visit Mexico. I recall reading, as a teenager, about the sacred cenotes (sinkholes) there where ritual sacrifices were performed. And the pyramids, too. There is so much fascinating history in Mexico. I’m sorry I missed seeing it.

Thank you for your comment peregrine79

Very cool to see you enjoyed the article. Its never too late to visit Mexico so definitely look into it at some point particularly in regards to Mexico city which is full of archeological sites of the Aztecs.
