Line A (Purple)

Station / Estación # 131: Agricola Oriental

Three months have passed since the last MCM Project trip down the fabled purple line so a return visit was long overdue. Agricola Oriental greeted me with the standard evangelical message of salvation in Christ. Angelically, walk the cross like a piratic plank, fierce flames of damnation will condemn those who err from the path. […]

Station / Estación # 70: Canal De San Juan

A swat team monitor every movement of a humble musician wandering off to earn some keep whilst cement oblong men contemplate their lot in life. Wanna be a communist?  To the left not the right I’ll think you find – arrow misleads. Pallid soma and flow of locks in open palms. Sorry, but you have […]

Station / Estación # 66: Tepalcates

The visit to Tepalcates was a bit of a step back in time. Old hollowed out cars, bicycles rusting away, sign peeling towards oblivion and a stoic nag awaiting the next call of duty from domineering masterful man. And it was all just too much for one jaded gent who slopped himself out onto a […]

Station / Estación # 64: Guelatao

Setting out on another adventure down the purple line I had no idea, no inkling whatsover that I would find myself within the inner depths of the cranium of revered former president Benito Juarez.  What an insight! After alighting in Guelato, where the station logo bears the image of Juarez as well (he was born […]

Station / Estación # 45: Acatitla

La ‘Carnaval 2012’ de Santa Martha Acatitla está por empezar! Estuve en Acatitla unos dias antes del principio de la carnaval pero llegué por casualidad a un evento de inicio pre-carnaval. Los rockeros vestidos de negro estaban ahi en fuerza, sus chelas en bolsas de plástico y listos para festejar! Un poco de Heavy Metal […]

Station / Estación # 43: Peñon Viejo

Otra excursión por la linea morada antes de divergir el MCM Project a una de las otras 10 lineas del sistema. Cuando todavía estaba en el tren vi unas fotos grandes pero desde la distancia no pude saber de qué eran. Me bajé en Peñon Viejo para ir a verlas de más cerca. Resulta que […]

Station / Estación # 42: Santa Marta

I exited the station at Santa Marta and was immediately greeted by a father and son donut-selling duo. I snapped a couple up at a peso (around 8c) a pop!  One peso per donut! I’ll go out on a limb and say that I reckon they could sell them for 2 pesos a donut and […]

Station / Estación # 41: Los Reyes

Ponga su corona o tiara, levantese de su trono (también conocido como su asiento de tren- no es tan dificil conseguirlo por ahi!) y preparase para pronunciar sus vocales en una manera regia porque a solamente una parada de La Paz llegará a Los Reyes. En el distrito alrededor de la estación había mucha acción. […]

Station / Estación # 40: La Paz

La Paz, I’d guess, is the furthest flung station on the whole metro network. It’s at the end of two lines.  To start on the journey first you need to get to Pantitlan, a terminus station for lines 1 and 9 and then change onto line A. It’s the only line for which they make […]
