Coba ruins part 2

 The Nohoch Mul pyramid
 120 steps to the top
made it to the top, finally!
scary going down as it was going up
Each site was about 10 to 15 minutes walk. I was dreading climbing up the Nohoch Mul pyramid but there was no going back. I had to do it in my flip flops (not a smart idea!). It was already mid-day when we started climbing. I was too afraid to look up so I had to crawl up and concentrated my thoughts with each step up. I wanted to give up; it was hot and very humid. Sweat was dripping down my head and my legs were shaking. I took breaks in between and finally made it to the top. I was so relieved. I had to rest and cool down. 

Going down the pyramid was also tricky. I couldn't stand up because I was afraid I was going to slip and fall. The rocks were really sharp so I had to sit down and use my butt to descend. The rope in the middle of the pyramid helped guide me down. My legs were so sore when I finally made it safely down. My mother on the other hand was smiling from ear to ear as if nothing happened. She hardly broke a sweat climbing up and down.

We hired a pedicab to go back to our minivan. I had to treat myself to a popsicle when we made it back to the entrance.

  3. I climbed up the pyramids of Teotihuacan... I climbed every single step, and I'm pretty sure I was nervous the whole way!
