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 […]

Station / Estación # 65: Allende

Baje en Allende y entrarás un hervidero de actividad – solo otro trabajador en el enjambre tal vez soñando de ser reina o zángano.  Melodias melíferas de un trio de musicos ciegos endulzan el aire. Bueno, ya basta con los metáforos apícolas. Un grupo de tributo a The Beatles tocan los clasicos, Frida adorna la […]
