Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with the Aztecs

When you think of Aztecs, what comes to mind?  Do you know they had one of the largest cities in the world during their peak?  Did you know they had knowledge of hundreds of botanicals and were well educated in medicinal and practical uses for plants and herbs?    We talk about the everyday life of an Aztec citizen as well as their sacrificing rituals.  

They were a fascinating people that deserve some highlighlighting!

This was the original map received on my trip to Mexico in the early 1980's.
