Pyramids Part 3: Temple of Quetzalcoatl

I went to Puebla over the weekend and have a lot of beautiful pictures to post, but first there is one last installment of my trip to the pyramids. After we met back up with our guide and had a quick lunch, he drove us over to the Citadel, which holds the Temple of  Quetzalcoatl (Feathered Serpent).

This square is so big that it could apparently have housed the whole adult population of Teotihuacan.

Throughout the whole trip we were serenaded by these horrible little instruments that make dragon ish sounding noises. I can´t remember what sound they are actually supposed to replicate, but all of the little kids had them and it was super annoying. Our guide was demonstrating it to us.

Some original coloring on the pyramid.
See all of the serpents?
