My sister Lesley-Ann is currently travelling solo around Mexico.

She posted some photos from Teotihuacán yesterday and it reminded me of when I dropped by when I was doing the trip that became my book The Full Montezuma.

Sadly, my original slides are in storage back in Oz. And the only pics I could find were these very low res ones I scanned in the very early days of the internet when bandwidth was at a premium.

I’ve had a bit of a tinker with them in Lightroom so you can at least get an idea of what they’re meant to be.

The day I visited the site was overrun with local school kids. I remember thinking at the time how cool it would be to go on a school excursion to a 2,000 year old pyramid and be allowed to clamber all over it.

Those days are gone, it seems. My sister said there are barriers now to stop you climbing the pyramids.

Health and safety, it seems, has finally reached Mexico.

Here’s some great news. The Full Montezuma is now available as an eBook. You’re just a click or two away from the chaos and colour of Central America as well as hard-won relationship advice!
