early morning climb—
a puma's roar announces
the first toy vendor

Among the many vendors who begin to slowly arrive at the Teotihuacan complex in the morning are those who sell wooden toys that when blown through produce a remarkably accurate sound of a puma's roar. I believe it takes a certain amount of skill and practice to pull this off, but all the vendors are quite good at it. I nearly pissed myself the first time I heard it. The sound is really amplified in the complex and the echoes are eerie.
