Station / Estación # 142: Bosque De Aragon

Hasta ahora ausente, el episodio final del cuarteto de estaciones Aragon ha llegado. La estación es paralela al parque expansivo que le da su nombre. Parece que los dias mejores del lugar ya han pasado.  No tiene la apariencia elegante de su pariente real Bosque de Chapultepec. Sin embargo tiene su encanto derelicto. Me agaché a […]

Station / Estación # 129: Villa De Aragon

The system (Papa) spawns yet another member of the prolific Aragon family. Aragon himself joined the party not so long ago. Plaza Aragon has been on board the virtual wagons of the MCM Project almost since the start. Now Villa De Aragon joins the mix.  If you’ll permit me further indulgence of personification I’ll label […]

Station / Estación # 122: Buenavista

Hoy decido añadir Buenavista al MCM Project.  No está muy lejos afuera del centro y por lo tanto no hizo necesario que viajara una distancia larga desde mi base en pleno centro. Sin embargo la ruta que elegi sí hizo necesario transbordos superfluos. Isabel La Catolica a Pino Suarez.  Cambiar. Pino Suarez a Hidalgo.  Cambiar. […]

Station / Estación # 113: Deportivo Oceanía

DEPORTIVO OCEANÍA: Lens to words (It’s all I’ve got) Metallic-framed carriages. Pockets of vision. Koala clings. A gun points.  Stop the violence. Scribble or scrawl.  Splash the colour. Skaol!  Then swing. Feeling yellow?  Tower of mustard. For the good of man! Public works or hot bread? Squared spectacles and prickles of white. Slide in.  Suggest.  […]

Station / Estación # 111: Lagunilla

Well, here we are.  Station triple one. That means that, as the metro system currently stands, (Line 12 still under construction) the third quarter of the project has been completed. It was quite advanced in the day before I ventured out so I decided to keep the project visit fairly close to home and clickety-clacked […]

Station / Estación # 99: Nezahualcóyotl

Si no el más destacado, Nezahualcóyotl es por lo menos un candidato principal para recibir el titulo de la estación con el nombre más dificil para pronunciar. Ubicado un poco afuera del borde del Distrito Federal en el Estado de México, los alrededores de un lado de la estación proporcionan otro viaje perceptual a una […]

Station / Estación # 94: Tepito

PART I:  LEAD UP TO THE VISIT: GOOD INTENTIONS VERGING ON SCAREMONGERING. There were people who told me to be careful around Indios Verdes and La Paz. Others have cautioned me to be on guard for upcoming MCM Project visits to Iztapalapa and Pantitlán. However, in terms of both quantity and seriousness those warnings pale […]

Station / Estación # 88: Oceania

If nothing else, being Australian in Mexico City ensures that from time to time (understatement) conversation turns to a certain marsupial. Lo and behold that certain marsupial – the kangaroo – lends its image to the station Oceania as its logo. I set out to investigate. Taking the customary station sign shot I notice a […]

Station / Estación # 84: Morelos

The inner city urban vibe is certainly in the air around Morelos. The bad and old joke first told to me by my great old pal Mel Cabral ‘What do you call two Mexicans playing basketball? – Juan on Juan’ came to mind as I faced up to the two-dimensional hoop shooting aficionados. I stared […]
