Line 4 (Light Blue)

Station / Estación 137: Fray Servando

Today’s visit to Fray Servando represents two milestones in the MCM Project. I have finally completed one line of the system in its entirety. The unpretentious light blue line (4) is the line in question.  Martin Carrera,  Santa Anita and all stations in between – done. With just ten stations, it has less stations than […]

Station / Estación # 128: Candelaria

  Sin intención, esta visita, # 128 a Candelaria (#127 en realidad cronólogica), llegó a ser un asunto de tres partes. La primera parte ocurrió en una manera principalmente convencional. La segunda parte fue basicamente un fiasco. Por fin hoy, la tercera parte restituyó lo que podía y añadio por los cimientos. Explicaré. Miercoles de […]

I visited the neighbourhood around Canal Del Norte, aka home of the encased Grim Reaper. Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a big thing in Mexico and death related […]

Station / Estación # 23: Santa Anita

So, you have a horse in need of some psychotherapy, physiotherapy, psychoanalysis and counselling, right? Well, this is the station for you. You see, there is an extensive Equine Therapy Centre. What was that?  Ahh, ok.  Therapy for people using horses.  Ok, I get it.  I am sure they do fantastic work but don’t horses […]
