It is late here in Mexico City and we are leaving early tomorrow to visit what I have been told is the first library ever established in the New World. So, a post on today’s visit to the Basilica of Guadalupe and the Teotihuacan pyramids near Mexico City will have to wait. Both are significant religious sites with bigger than life monuments, though from different time periods and of very different religions. The contrast and similarities were revealing. More in a couple of days when I have more time.
