San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico
We were walking with friends through the streets of San Miguel when we came across this intersection where one street was called "Macias Hernandez." It so happens one of us is a Macias, and the other (my girlfriend in the picture) is a Hernandez.

I was excited to learn of this pyramid site that was just recently opened to the public. Day trips leave from San Miguel and very inexpensive. It's quite a hike but the view of the country and the gorges are beautiful!
