Mount Albán is an amazing ancient Mexican ruin found on the edge of Oaxaca. For just under $5 one can see a very cool part of global history. We started through the museum to read and get a better understanding of what life was like thousands of years ago. Amazed by the attention to detail and large amount of information given inside, we decided to get out there to see it all.
As we exited the museum all we could see were massive steps. Feeling a bit like Indiana Jones, we climbed up the steps and were excited to discover a new land.
The view of this massive city sat below. There were huge structures that instantly evoked deep thought within each of us as we stood there in silence and in awe. Finally, when we spoke to one another, the words “how” and “why” were used in every other sentence.
There was so much unknown in front of us yet an odd sense of comfort lingered as well. It was an amazing experience to feel a part of something so historic and important to this country’s past. The entire thing was a genuine work of art–one where math, science and nature came together in perfect harmony.
We ran all around the fields taking photos of each other with our LOOTB bracelets. We felt that we were truly living Life Out of the Box and we wanted to capture every minute of it. The creative vibes were flowing out of all four of us as our surroundings constantly inspired us.
We climbed up every set of steps and viewed every inch of the property. We felt like real explorers who had just discovered this amazing place for the first time.
It was really special to be able to share this experience with our sisters as well. We goofed around like kids again on the playground. It was something none of us will ever forget.
After hours of exploration we ran back to the entrance to catch a bus back to town before night fall. We were rejuvenated with an energy of creativity and a heightened lust for life.
Visiting the ruins of Mount Albán was an amazing experience that we would recommend to anyone. Explore the world as if you are discovering it for the first time, because most of the time, you are.
