PITT-BRADFORD GROUP TO TRAVEL TO MEXICAN ARCHAEOLOGY SITES

BRADFORD, Pa. – Members of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford community will travel to Mexico next month as part of the 6th Annual Maya Archaeology Spring Break Trip, which will take place from March 8-14.

The trip will highlight Teotihuacan, the enormous city “where time began,” the Aztec Templo Mayor discovered under the Zocalo plaza of Mexico City, agave (tequila) plantations, obsidian workshops, the Xochimilco gardens by canal boat, the Cacaxtla murals, and also the Aztec Calendar Stone and other treasures of the Museo National, the world’s best anthropological museum, featured in the best-seller book “1000 Places to See Before You Die.”

The $1050 price of the trip includes hotels, two meals each day, van transportation, tours by archaeologists, and entrance fees to museums and sites. It does not include airfare to/from Mexico City, Mexico.

The trip is open to anyone with an interest in the Maya and Aztecs, in archaeology, in the ecology of the Basin of Mexico, or in an adventuresome week, including children age 12 or older, if accompanied by a responsible parent.

Anyone interested in the trip should contact Isabelle Champlin immediately at (814) 362-7623 or ichamplin@gmail.com. This trip is not sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. A detailed itinerary is available at http://www.mayaexploration.org/study_UPitt_mar09.php .

"hey!" "don't drink the water or eat chocolate!"

This trip is in a different area of Mexico than the previous warning mentioned. While US citizens travelling to any other country should always have a heightened awareness, I would think travelling with a guided group is a much safer option. The sites on this itinerary are phenomenal, I have been to most of them and would love to go back someday. For anyone going to Mexico please DO try the chocolate, it is incorporated into many foods and quite good. After all chocolate was invented in Mexico. As for the water... ask for bottled and watch out for ice cubes in your drinks (they were made with the tap water). Or just start eating a bunch of yogurt about 2 weeks before you leave that will help balance the bacteria in your stomach.
Viva Mexico!!!
