MEXICO CITY METRO!The project to visit every station of the Mexico City Metro and document the surrounding areas with photos and written impressions is now complete!
If you are planning on visiting Mexico City it can be a great resource for seeing what there is to see and do around lesser known parts of Mexico City.
If not it serves as a virtual tour of el DF with sops at every station without leaving your house.
Looking forward to your feedback.

2Very nice website. Welll done. I vote this the Post Of The Year and most definitely should be added to Mexico FAQs. And, it's bilingual to boot.
An aside: it was weird to ride the metro in Paris France this past July as the toll booths & turnstyles, ticket dispensors and train cars look and function exactly like the ones in D.F. even down to the little paper tickets with the magnetic strip on the back (and no wonder since the same company built both metro systems). The metro in Paris is much older and dirtier however.

An amazing and ambitious project realized, great photos. My sincerest congratulations.
The writing is heavy going and could benefit greatly from a merciless edit.
It might also be more useful with fewer graphics on each page.
Edited by: Anonimo to add congratulations.

8Amigo Pedro, Why would there be a rush hour between 1:30 pm to 3 pm? The thing you mentioned about women, only applies during rush hours, no? Without meaning any disrespect, would like to re-word what you said using the word wagon. Instead of using the word "wagon". it might have been better to say " metro car" . A wagon means to me something like a horse drawn buggy. Buena suerte, Edmund

11Good project. Well done. If anyone of us can do better, let us try.
Anything which supplements the information travelers may already have and which allows them/us to better understand this massive community is a welcome addition.
Thanks for your efforts.
Don't be a stranger, though. Nor a hit and run artist. You've a responsibility, now, to participate here on topics/discussions you have knowedge of. And given the vast number of Metro stations you've written about and taken photos of ... the field is wide.

12Thanks to everyone for the comments and feedback. The project took almost 7 months, on the metro pretty much every day after work visiting a new station. Great experience and a great way to get to know this city although there is plenty more beyond the reach of the metro. Obviously my experience of each station is a snapshot of my experience on one particular day. Everybody brings their own perspective! Some days I had more or less time than others. I basically just took photos of anything that caught my eye but far and away the highlight of the project was meeting the folk of Mexico City. Cheers!
