It would have taken me at least a week to do that. I quote his beginning, The male children came running up the perfectly carved steps of the massive temple.
They marched in one by one in a single filed line to their places on the stone ground. The children stared intently at me, ready to begin their lesson of the glorious civilization of the Aztecs.
