Pyramid of the Sun

Pyramid of the Sun, State of Mexico, Mexico
Teotihuacan, birthplace of the Gods.
As if Mexico city didn't have enough to do and see, you have to also strongly consider doing a few day trips if you have the time. The pyramids of Teotihuacan have a unique story and are an important part of Mexican history. They city is believed to be the largest in the pre-Columbian Americas. The actual name of the city is unknown, but the Aztecs named it "Teotihuacan" or "birthplace of the Gods". This is because the Aztecs believed that the gods created the universe at that site. The city is about two hours from Mexico City and extremely worth visiting. I thought it was beautiful to see these ruins. They are extremely well preserved! There must have been so many stories here of families and a community that was definitely ahead of it's time. Photography by Ruddy Harootian

Wander endlessly in the green spaces at the Chicago Botanic Garden
The extensive gardens and exhibits at the Chicago Botanic Gardens are a bit out of the way for visitors staying downtown in the Windy City, but it's worth the trip. The water garden will make you long for a lake(however small) to plant lily-pads in at home and the waterfall garden will make you feel like you were airlifted out of Illinois to Hawaii. The Japanese Garden and Walled English Gardens are soothing and stunning simultaneously and the Botanic's bonsai collection is impressive, even if the display space (bricked in courtyards) is not. Birds and chipmunks frolic throughout, despite the Botanic's no feeding policy. While I didn't try the museum's restaurant, it did have a lovely terrace overlooking its lake. Parking is pricey--$25 for non-residents, but entry is free. Looking for an unusual souvenir? The museum's gift shop sells a Chicago-themed perfume made from flowers from urban gardens.

CAMEL TREKKING MOROCCO
I had the absolute thrill of visiting beautiful Morocco and I decided to try one of the camel treks..Best decision ever! After the hilarious sight of me trying to hang on while the camel stood the rest of the trek was wonderful...my guide was a very polite and knowledgeable young man with Mouhootours Adventures by the name of Aziz...this company and guide had been recommended by a friend and it was all my friend had said it would be...the trek in itself was great but the highlight of my evening was when we sat around the campfire listening to some great music and enjoyed the delicious mint tea Morocco is famous for...I highly recommend this if you want a great adventure!!
