From a community of 1000, to a city of 20 million is quite a shock.
Since the last time I was here, it feels like the number of cars in Mexico City has doubled. Traffic everywhere is heavy at all hours.
But the drivers have entertainment at the stop lights…a clown to wash your windows.
A new addition to aid transportation throughout the city is the Metro-Bus….it’s like a Metro…but a bus above the ground. It has four different lines that go virtually everywhere the older Metro goes, including the Airport.
The Metro-Bus at 6 pesos is twice the cost of the Metro. Even with the extra cost, it still is jam packed full at rush hour.
Saturdays are a day of Tianguis and Football. Throughout the city, the tianguis, or markets are busy selling fruits, vegatables, great Oaxacan cheese, etc…
..and the Mexicans do love their Chicharrones (deep fried pork rinds)..
Wandering through there, I came across a wonderful art exhibit at a government building. This was an exhibit from the Mexican School of Down Art, started in 1993 by the John Langdon Down Foundation, to work with artistically talented people with Downs Syndrome.
Wandering about, one can find many wonderful little art galleries.
Many things to discover in a city this size…
