North America » Mexico » Puebla » Cholula March 4th 2021 3rd March - The Pyramid of Cholula - Dedicated to the god Quetzalcoatl in the San Andrés Cholula, Puebla municipality of Mexico. Originally constructed over 2000 years ago, the Great Pyramid of Tepanapa (often referred to as the Great Pyramid of Cholula) boasts a larger volume than any other ancient, man-made structure including the Egyptian pyramids. Stylistically, the pyramid is an oddity, puzzling archeologists to this day by incorporating architectural elements of both the Teotihuacan and El Tajin civilizations. During the many pre-Columbian power shifts in Mexico, the pyramid itself fell out of use in favor of other structures, such as one of the many sacrificial altars on the ten-acre site. It is unclear whether it was through disuse that the pyramid became overgrown with shrubbery, or if, when the Aztecs caught ... read more

Hello all, I just realized I've been on several trips since my last post and I haven't blogged at all. I also noticed I have 8 entries that I haven't completed and published. Once I get some time t review them, and publish them. Since I'm going on a couple more trips this year, I figured it was time to blog again. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this short recap of the trip I just went on. I think one of the greatest gifts people can have is true friendship. Luckily, I've been blessed with a great wife, great family, and great friends. The latter was the reason for this trip. Our friend Lee (aka Dj Hoppa) is getting married later this month. Thus, a bunch of our friends that have know each other ... read more

Feb 14, 2020 – Mar 07, 2020 We left home just after lunch on Friday February 14, 2020. Our truck with our 35 square foot casa on the back is packed with the essentials we will require, and then some, for the next 75 or so days. First stop is Calgary where we went out for a nice Valentine’s Day supper and spent the night with friends. We hit the road early and made it to the US border by around noon on Feb 15th and crossed with no issues or holdups. We made our way quickly through the US spending the first night in a hotel in Dillon, Montana, the second night we got a hotel in Beaver, Utah. The next day we made it to Yuma, Arizona and stayed in our tiny casa in ... read more
