Interesting article I found, sorry I have misplaced the author.

Every year thousands of vacationers come to the Canary Islands to enjoy the sunshine, beaches, and many resorts that dot the islands!

1,000 Places to see before you die.

Very few even realize the islands boast many pyramids, which are well worth seeing. Most of the pyramids are located near the town of Guimar on the Island of Tenerife.

Located on the east side of the island, near the south end, the pyramids were first discovered by the famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl.

According to most reports, the pyramids were described as just piles of rocks or agricultural terraces made by ancient farmers. Upon observing the pyramids Thor didn’t agree and was so impressed by them, he remained to study them during the last years of his life.

Resembling step pyramids found in Egypt, Mexico and Peru, the question remains, who built them, and when?

One of the theories is that they were built by the Guanches, the original inhabitants of The Canary Islands. Although the Guanches were thought to not have the technical abilities needed to build the pyramids, they did mummify their dead as the Egyptians,and they also knew about pyramid design as has been illustrated on their  artistic seals known as pintaderas.

There is much evidence the pyramids were aligned astronomically and it has been theorized they were used for ceremonies at special times of the year, such as the solstices and equinoxes. Not only are the pyramids located on the south of the island, they can be seen on the west side of the island and in the north as well.

Although no one knows for sure who built them, most of them are located in areas of the island the Guanches inhabited. Could these ancient inhabitants be the same peoples that immigrated to Egypt and constructed the pyramids in that ancient land? Are they remnants of a great society that possibly existed in this part of the world, possibly Atklantis,before recorded history,and before the ancient Egyptian empire rose from the ashes?

In Search of the Inner World


They had been traveling for days across the frozen tundra in search of the alleged hole to an inner world thought to be at the north pole.

Igor and Ivan began their journey many miles to the south where the climate was much different than what they were now facing. They had never traveled this far north into Siberia and even though they knew the weather would be quite different than what they experienced in their native land, it was much more severe than anything they could ever imagine.

Many miles were yet to be traveled before they reached their destination, and their circumstances were dire. They had ran out of many provisions and turned to eating their starving and dying dogs once they could no longer pull the sled.

The hole in the earth which lead to an inner world had long been rumored to hold many secrets to life and a gateway to a world where mastodons and many other ancient forms of life still roamed. A world  where an inner sun provided light and warmth to what would be an otherwise cold and dark environment.

When they found this illusive entryway, it would be a boon to civilization and answer a lot of questions. It would put to rest many of the nonbelievers statements, and open a whole new field of understanding for others to pursue and acknowledge.

As the two soulmates in time trudged on, hope faded, their dogs had all now passed on, with their food dwindling and no water they must find the passageway soon, there was no turning back, they had come too far and had no provisions to provide nourishment for the return trip.

Finally with no food or water, first Igor succumed to the environment, then Ivan also. This journey had ended short of it’s goal.Once again the mystery would be unsolved, is there actually a hole leading to an inner world at the north pole, or is it just a legend that has no answer, only time will tell.
