One of the most important religious and educational centers in ancient Mesoamerica, Cholula, which means “place of those who fled,” is the oldest continually inhabited city in the northern hemisphere.
According to Aztec legend, Iztaccíhuatl's father sent him to war in Oaxaca, promising him his daughter as his wife if he returned (which Iztaccíhuatl's father presumed he would not). Iztaccíhuatl's father told her that her lover had fallen in battle and she died of grief. When Popocatépetl returned, and discovered the death of his lover, he committed suicide by plunging a dagger through his heart. The gods covered them with snow and changed them into mountains. Iztaccíhuatl's mountain was called "La Mujer Dormida", (the "Sleeping Woman"), because it bears a resemblance to a woman sleeping on her back. Popocatépetl became the volcano Popocatépetl, raining fire on Earth in blind rage at the loss of his beloved.
The fumaroles of Popocatepetl are evidence of the warm heart of the warrior which seeks to keep Xochiquetzal’s ( his fiancee) body warm.

I am grateful that my parents' gave me a generic name. It's allowed me to explore numerous paths unhindered.
