love old Datsun's

We also headed to Tepoztlán. In this town you head up these stairs for about 20 min's then you have to climb rocks up to the top of the mountain for another 40 min's...and you'll come across this....."El Tepozteco is an archaeological site in the Mexican state of Morelos. It consists of a small temple to the Aztec god Tepoztecatl, a god of the alcoholic pulque beverage" from Wikipedia

Jazmine climbed the mountain with her 3 yr old on her back. Her 60 yr old Mother beat both of us as well.. ha

Here's some more info on it from Wikipedia

"According to myth, Tepoztlan is the birthplace over 1200 years ago of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent god widely-worshipped in ancient Mexico.
It has not yet been possible to determine who first inhabited the area. The earliest findings of pottery and other ceramic utensils date back to approximately 1500 BCE.
By the 10th century CE the Toltec culture was predominant in the area. Tepoztlán is said to have been the birthplace of Ce Acatl, a very important Toltec leader, later known as Topiltzin Ce Acatl Quetzalcoatl, and who may be the possible historical basis of the Mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl.
During the Spanish Conquest Hernán Cortés is said to have ordered the town razed after the refusal of the town leaders to meet him. This event was chronicled by Bernal Díaz del Castillo in The Conquest of New Spain.
Indie musician Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) recorded his eponymous self-titled album in the City in 2008."
