Had an amazing hike at Nevado de Toluca! Here’s Lago del Sol as we continued upwards. Hiking above 13k feet is no joke, haha. I could definitely feel that altitude. @eac and I went with a small group which made it so much more fun than going on our own. Highly recommend checking in with @berniearciga to see which trips he’s organizing if you’re visiting Mexico City!
Living in a world where technology and people are networked together, Cyber risk is now firmly at the top of the international agenda as high-profile breaches raise fears of hack attacks and other security failures of the system. This makes us realize the importance of learning the offensive security for which learning Ethical Hacking becomes a necessity.
To resolve such issues, we designed an Android application named – ‘[email protected]’ exclusively developed for practicing Ethical Hacking.

Learned so much during our visit to Teotihuacan. The Pyramid of the Sun viewed from The Pyramid of the Moon. I hope one day we can discover what you were truly called - so many mysteries still being unearthed and put together.

The name of this tower – Burana – comes from the Arabic word “monar”, which means minaret. A minaret is part of a mosque, a high tower which is used for the call for prayer. There are a lot of legends about the construction of the tower, one of them reminding me of the fairy-tale of Sleeping Beauty:
Once upon a time there was a powerful khan who had a beautiful daughter. To celebrate her birth, he invited all the fortune tellers and wise men of the land. They all foretold she would have a long and happy one, well… all except for one. One old man predicted that the girl would die from a spider bite on her sixteenth birthday. This prediction terrified the khan so much, that he built a tall tower where he placed his daughter in isolation.
The girl grew up in the tower. Servants brought her food and drinks, delivering it in a basket by climbing a ladder that was placed against the outside walls of the tower. Everything got inspected thoroughly, to make sure that no spider would ever reach her. On the day of her 16th birthday, the khan was so happy that the old man’s prediction didn’t come true, that he hurried to the tower to celebrate it with his daughter. He went to her room carrying a basket of fresh grapes. In his rush, he failed to notice a poisonous spider which had concealed itself in the basket. As his daughter was reaching for the fruit, the spider bit her and the girl immediately collapsed and died.
The khan was stricken with grief and cried so loudly, that the tower shook. The top part of the tower toppled down, leaving it in ruins.
How beautiful (and sad) this legend might be, the fact is that the upper part of the minaret collapsed during after a major earthquake in the 15th century, reducing its size from 40 to the 25 meters we see today.
The Santa Fe Learn & Explore trip has come to a close and was a MASSIVE success! 5 Wayfinding students and 1 Wayfinding president spent a glorious week exploring the land, learning about sustainability and sovereignty, spending time at the New Mexico Museum of Art, eating great food, and even making their own biodiesel from repurposed cooking oil! What a week!!! Sign up for our email list to get our weekly newsletter which will include a student made recap story and video about the trip.
