Slowly the sky got darker. The moon moved to block out the Sun. I only had a few moments before the eclipse would be over, a few moments before I was cursed for eternity. This was meant to be a holiday – Mexico and Brazil. How could a simple one – day tour to Teotihuacan (Temple of the Sun and the Moon) end as horribly as this? The magnificent statue had caught my eye immediately. An intricately carved obsidian panther that came with a tale of an ancient curse…I wasn’t really listening to the guide…but now I know why the sign said ‘Do Not Touch’!
