October 30: We arrive in Mexico City early in the morning today. Our private vehicle and guide will be waiting for us at the airport. We will transfer to our hotel, have breakfast and rest a bit. After a short rest, we will start our trip to Mexico City. One of the first places we will see will be the Frida Kahlo Museum. We will take the first photos of the trip in this very colorful museum. We will walk through the city to get to know the historical center of Mexico City, which has been included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO and to take photos. The giant Constitution Square, known as the Zocalo, and the Metropolitan Cathedral, which was built on the site of an Aztec Temple, will be our main visiting points. After our tour in the city, we will return to our hotel, having finished today's photos.

We will transfer from the area to our hotel and leave our luggage. Since today is the "Day of the Dead", we will mingle with the people commemorating the graves of their loved ones and take photos at the cemetery.

Monte Alban is an ancient pre-Columbian archaeological site located in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. In addition, Monte Alban is a very important region in terms of astronomy. What we learned will be of a kind that will make you wonder how they knew about them at that time. It is located in a mountainous area rising above the plain in the central part of the Oaxaca Valley, where the cities of Etla to the north, Tlacolula to the east, and Zimatlán and Ocotlán (or Valle Grande) to the south meet. After our visit to Monte Alban, which is on the Unesco World Heritage List, we will go to the public cemetery to take pictures of the families who came to visit on the Day of the Dead. At the end of our trip, accommodation and dinner will be at our Oaxaca hotel.

We aim to reach the area where the Chichen Itza Pyramids are located during the hours when the light is beautiful. Chicken Itza is an ancient city that has been included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO and covers an area of 300 hectares. A large Maya Society developed here between 700-900 years ago and built most of the structures in the southern part of the area. However, the design of the main structures such as the Kukulkan Pyramid, which is dedicated to the Feathered Serpent God and symbolizes the Mayan calendar with a total of 365 steps, located in the middle region, the Temple of the Warriors decorated with Jaguar and Eagle motifs, and the “Juego de Pelota” ball playground, the largest example of the Maya world, are clearly designed. It has a Toltec influence. After our tour, we head to İkkil Cenote to take pictures. We can call the Turkish equivalent of a Cenote a sinkhole. Each of these sinkholes gives very beautiful photos with interesting light plays from the other. The second pothole we will visit today will be Suytun.
