You garden is quite lovely. It would be a shame if something were to… happen to it…
Lance Wyman, Olympic postage stamps for Mexico ‘68.
The radiating and colorful lines that extend from the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, at top, and which surround the stadium at the University City of UNAM in Mexico City, below it, provide more than a graphic connection between these two sites. They also refer to the connection established between the pre-Hispanic site and the modernist building between October 11 and October 12, 1968 as part of the events that surrounded the Mexico ‘68 Olympics. The night of October 11, the Olympic torch was spectacularly received in Teotihuacan after traveling through many parts of Europe and Mexico. The following day, the torch reached the UNAM stadium and was greeted in the midst of a ceremony that commemorated the inauguration of the Olympics. In Alberto Isaac’s Olimpíada en México, the torch’s journey is captured beautifully in film. Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M00Kgo-mcE
