You are Fanny Calderon de la Barca, Mexico's most famous explorer. You were born in Edinburgh, UK, but travelled to and lived in Mexico. There, you wrote about the sights and sounds of this country to share with the world.

One day in 1839, upon first arriving in Mexico, you come across an ancient gold artifact. As soon as you touch it, it transports you to the modern day. On arrival here, a young man picks up the artifact and runs away with it.

You must find it to get back 'home'.

a few areas were obscured or unable to be accessed due to construction, etc. The “story” was the least interesting part
