Station / Estación # 56: Villa De Cortes

Of all the conquistadors there is none more famous than Hernán Cortés.  This ‘village’ bears his name. The sun beat down reflecting brilliantly off the rubescent shininess of the old Henry. The eclecticism of a cafe converted from a garage called me in. Acclaim the varied architecture.   Twigs stem from branches to web the […]

Station / Estación # 54: Romero Rubio

Around Romero Rubio my sense of geography was bent, contorted and twisted out of shape. I found where Morocco meets Jerusulem, Japan meets Damascus and Cairo meets Guinea. Cats on the prowl, Our Lady of Saint John of the Lakes and close encounters with young punks on bikes (1 photo testifies!). In a neighbourhood named […]

Station / Estación # 52: Ricardo Flores Magon

The heyday of Mexican anarchist Ricardo Flores Magon is long gone and so too is that of the namesake station. A quiet industrial area, where most of the industry seems to have shut down, hugs the station.  A mini rust belt remains. A disused railway line hints at former glory. The Modelo Beer Group is […]

Station / Estación # 49: Refineria

Sal de la estación y te recibirán infantes ligeramente perturbados.  Bueno, imagenes de ellos. Pero lo que realmente destaca es el ‘Parque […]

Station / Estación # 48: Boulevard Puerto Aereo

There is a palpable sense of Jesus love around Boulevard Puerto Aereo. In what I dub ‘the corridor of Christ’ veneration culminates in one word simplicity- Jesus. Disclaimer:  This is not a Christian blog. I experienced a great example of canine photographic cooperation- you are my stoic doggish friend.  Look to the right, now to […]

Station / Estación # 47: San Antonio Abad

La visita del MCM Project a San Antonio Abad se extendió a dos dias consecutivos. Un enigma del proyecto es cómo delinear las zonas entre las estaciones del metro.  Algunas estaciones estan en proximidad cercana de otras y por lo tanto en algunas ocasiones he encontrado que mis caminatas me han llevado al alcance más […]

Station / Estación # 46: Doctores

An early reprieve from the day job gave me most of the afternoon to free ride the metro. The first (and as it turned out only) stop was Doctores.  It ended up being the longest visit of the MCM project to date mainly because it was punctuated by a couple of serendipitous pit stops.  More […]
