archeological zone of eagle warriors

to follow on from my speculations yesterday, yes, malinalco is pretty dope. i kept hearing people ride by on horses all night last night. because they use horses as a form of transportation here.

what academics say about the solar-oriented positioning of the temple

The Cuauh were an elite order of Aztec, or Mexica, warriors, as I mentioned yesterday. The temple was established as a meeting spot for the group along with the Ocelotl (ocelot) warriors when the Mexica took over the area in the late 1400s.

  1. good to see you had a nice time in malinalco. to me, it’s one of the few small charming towns near DF. others, like tepoztlan, are clusterf*cks.

    i know it will change if they ever improve the road conditions and make it easier to get there.
