I am not sure how to write this post up to be honest, the site was mesmerising just the sheer scale of the two main pyramids ( far superior in my opinion to those in Giza).
Built it is believed around the 2nd century BCE, whilst those in the "modern world" were still living in mud huts, The site was laid out in a geometric form over a vast 8sq.miles.
The engineering feat by modern day standards would be immense.
NOW. You tell me that we have not been visited by a superior intelligence from another dimension. The factual enigma is that no one knows who actually constructed this complex. It's original name is unknown and was only called Teotihuacan, when discovered by the Aztecs in the 15th century.
It is pre history, it is a live archeological site.
The Land of the Sun and The land of the Moon
Facing west, the Pyramid of the Sun rises 216 feet with a base measuring approximately 720 by 760 feet. Alas due to people falling off the top it is now
wisely, disappointingly prohibited to climb the structures here at the site. It is flat topped; as it was here that ritual human sacrifices were made in their 1,000's.
The pyramid of the moon, smaller in size at 140 ft high stands at the North end of The Avenue of the Dead and leads to and passed the Sun Pyramid. It is known as the Avenue of the dead as it is believed it was lined on both sides by tombs.

How they know, I guess is like gravity, just a theory, but at its peak the population was between 100-200 thousand made up of Elites down to the labouring working class.
Around the 8th century the inhabitants just completely disappeared of the face of the earth.
No one knows why or where to.
Did E.T. phone home?
.....and finally ...... there was BEER
