The photo above shows just about how far up the Pyramid of the Sun I managed to climb. The 246 foot tall Pyramid at Teotihuacan outside of Mexico City, pretty much goes straight up. Besides being amazingly steep, each step was about 6 inches deep, far too small for me to fit my feet. It reminded me how much bigger I am than the indigenous folks out there.
Among my other excuses: the heat, the elevation, and being a chickenshit.
