There's a national museum of anthropology at the ruins of Teotihuac'n. These are ruins around in Mexico City and no one knows who built its pyramids, temples and palaces, or who even lived there. Bigger than the modern city of Rome, Teotihuac'n was one of the most powerful cities in Central America. Then, in 700 A.D., it was abandoned. No one knows why. Now there's an Anthropology museum on the site that sheds a bit of light on Teotihuac'n's secrets.
Monarch butterflies vacation in Mexico as well as humans. Every autumn millions and millions of monarch butterflies make their way down from Canada to the fir trees of Michoac'n.

A monarch butterfly weighs next to nothing, but there can be so many on a tree that limbs break off.
