Here are some more shots from the Mexico City Metro System,grainy, blurry and this time in colour.
Me meti en un vagón del metro y no he podido salir de aqui (I jumped into a subway car and I haven´t been able to get off) So starts the song el metro by seminal Mexican rock group Cafe Tacuba. And often, yes, that is the way it feels, trapped, at the mercy of... Continue Reading →
On weekdays I alight from the subway, the new day still in darkness and join the throng to ascend the stairs and listen to the female cry of 5 peso jellies for breakfast. Through the turnstiles and then I turn left, still groggy from too little sleep and pass churros being sugared, fruits high-powered liquefied,... Continue Reading →
Just over a month ago I was interviewed on canal once about the Mexico City Metro Project which I initially completed in 2012 and updated this year.
On Friday of last week a short segment about the Mexico City Metro Project was aired on ‘Itinerario’ (Itinerary), a show on Canal Once (Channel Eleven) which is owned and operated by the Instituto Politecnico Nacional.
I was interviewed by host Tamara De Anda and we did a mini tour of a few of the stations of the system. Check it out below!

Without an operational metro system to ride I decided to continue on foot from my previous visit to Tlahuac. Consequently the visit did seem to merge with the previous one. As I walked I thought 'Am I closer to Tlahuac or Tlaltenco?' Station delineation has long been a quandary. I found bright birds, a church,... Continue Reading →
I made it down to the end of the line today - Tlahuac. The metro got me to Atlalilco but then I had to get on one of the RTP buses that have been providing a free replacement service since the middle of last week. As today was a public holiday (Juarez's birthday) I thought it would... Continue Reading →
Metro station Tezonco: Station icon is a human skull. I was ready to fill my own with come what may. It was early Monday afternoon when I arrived and the streets were quiet. I arrived at the church to observe, inside and out; a 6 point plan 'how to be a saint', papel picado fluttering against a... Continue Reading →
