Thursday 27th February 2014….a tour day!!!

Last day of February tomorrow where did the new year go it seems just a short while ago it was the Christmas season…….

Your lucky day today…you get to come along on the free, donations will be accepted of course, Pearson  tour of the pyramids Canada la Virgin….

At 10 am Carolyn, Gail and Larry and I met our tour guide Albert Coffee down town and along with 2 other couples were driven the 15 miles to the site….I can only say how brilliant Albert was and through the course of the tour the knowledge he passed on was very informative, humorous  and interesting.

There is so much to know that all I can say is that this tour must be on your bucket list when you come to SMA.

The site was only opened to the public 3 years ago and to have this so close to the city is incredible…..Albert guided us through all the stages of the complex and then explained about the history of the site and the people who dwelled here he was even part of the site’s digging crew when the excavations began.

He explained about the plant life, the solar systems and so much history here are some of the shots….hope you enjoy!!!
