Manual packed the car and we started out from the apartment, passing the seven stray dogs with matted coats the made the alley way their home. We stopped a few minutes later to fill the car up with petrol (Gas for Americans), this is an experience too. Firstly, because you never leave the car. In the UK you do everything yourself, in Mexico you do nothing because someone can make a few pesos doing it for you! Our car was serviced by a very pretty girl in an oily boiler suit; she filled the car with gas, checked the oil, tyres then cleaned the windscreen - passing low enough over the bonnet for both Manual and I to observe what the oily rags were hiding! Abril disciplined Manual with a quick bark and a slap on the back of his chair!
Around an hour of Mexican cruising later and we arived at the pyramids.
There are two main pyramids. One represents the Moon, where energy is relased and the other, the Sun, where you are recharged. To do this you have to walk over a mile of small walls and climb the moon pyramid. Stand with your hands up in the air and breath in and out. Then do the same on the Sun.
Worth mentioning, is the a restuarant called La Grotta that's just outside of the pyramids. It's set inside the enterance of a huge cavern, the food is not bad and it's a great place to relax after walking all day around the dusty stone buildings.
