Teotihuacan

"Teotihuacán" is a Nahuatl name,translated as "City where men become gods." According to legend it was where the Gods gathered to plan the creation of man. Construction of Teotihuacán commenced around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC. The city reached its zenith approx. 150--450 A.D., when it was the center of an influential culture. At its height the city covered over 30 square km, and housed a population of as many as 200,000. The central avenue is called "Avenue of the Dead". The city contained palaces, apartment buildings, a marketplace, huge pyramids and temples used for worship. Teotihuacán was a place of pilgrimage in Aztec times, who identified it with the myth of Tollan, the place where the sun was created. Around 750 A.D., much of the city was burned, possibly during an invasion or a rebellion.

To French Polynesia, the fabled islands that caught the imagination and the heart of Melville, Paul Gauguin and now The Compulsive Traveler. Of course being pampered on the super-luxurious m/s Paul Gauguin opens the door to romance…. He follow s his heart to Oaxaca, Mexico where his New York friends Marissa and Emmanuel are to be married 3 ways: in a Zapotec, Miztec and Spanish ceremony. Talk about opening up exotic romantic possibilities. And the wedding guests get a taste of the ancient and fascinating Oaxaca culture. In order to find a date, he flies across the International Date Line all the way to exotic Fiji. Love must be somewhere in one of these 320 beautiful islands. And drinking plenty of kava with the locals makes all the girls look like stars. Grenada in the Caribbean is the spice island and the home of all the great aphrodisiacs from nutmeg to cinnamon to chocolate. So a stop there is a must to investigate among others the connection between girls and chocolate.
