Station / Estación # 124: Autobuses Del Norte

Si el pulso acelerado de la metrópolis inmensa empieza a atacar tus nervios y te encuentras con el impulso irreprimible de retirar tu ser de la locura de la Ciudad de México entonces esta estación, Autobuses Del Norte, te podría servir.

Buses salen y llegan con frecuencia, con servicios al y del norte, noreste, noroeste de la ciudad.

Tal vez un viaje de ida y vuelta en el mismo día a los piramides enormes de Teotihuacan será suficiente para apaciguarte.

Más lejos tampoco es problema.

¿Quieres ir toda la distancia a una de las ciudades infames de la frontera EEUU-México como Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales o Matamoros?

Bienvenidos abordo.

Y eso es solo para empezar.

En viajes del pasado he ido a la ‘Ciudad Rosa’, Jaipur, en Rajastán, India y la ‘Ciudad Armarilla’ Izamal, aqui en el estado de Yucatán en la república mexicana

Las dos ciudades estan dominadas por edificios de estos colores, uniformidad mantenido por estipulaciones rigurosas.

Bueno, alrededor de esta estación de metro parece que se han aplicado estipulaciones parecidas a los puestos de tacos y tortas.  En este caso, rayas rojas y armarillas

Entonces, por una mezcla de casualidad y diseño, creo, la combinación de repente pareció estar por todos lados.

Mire la galería.

Luego, siguiendo el proceso de una visita normal, recibi una llamada para irme a compartir una paloma relajante – tequila, refresco de toronja, sobre hielo.

Amistad sencilla en la calle.

Con un cielo oscuro envolviendo de nuevo, el tiempo para despedirme,  decir gracias y huirme había venido.

Todo lo que quedaba eran unas pausas breves para tomar unas fotas al medio de la prisa empezando de nuevo el camino a casa.

If the accelerated pulse of the immense metropolis begins to grate on your nerves and you find yourself with an overpowering impulse to withdraw your being from the megalopolitan madness of Mexico City, then this station, Autobuses Del Norte, could be of use to you.

Buses depart and arrive with frequency servicing destinations to the north, northeast and northwest of the city.

Maybe a day trip to the mammoth pyramids of Teotihuacan will be enough to appease you.

Further afield isn’t a problem either.

Want to go to all the way to one of the currently infamous US-Mexico border cities such as Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales or Matamoros?

Welcome aboard.

And that’s just the beginning.

In past travels I’ve been to the ‘Pink City’, Jaipur, in Rajasthan, India and the ‘Yellow City’, Izamal, in the state of Yucatan right here in the United Mexican States.

Both cities are dominated by edifices of these colours, uniformity maintained by rigorous stipulations.

Well, around this metro station it seems that similar stipulations have been enforced to the taco and torta stands.  Red and yellow stripes the order of the day.

And then, by mixture of chance and design, methinks, the combination suddenly seemed to be everywhere.

Just check the gallery.

Later in the visit, undertaking regular project procedure, I was given the call across and invited to partake in a soothing paloma – tequila, squash, on the rocks.

Simple friendship on the street.

With a dark sky enveloping again the time to say goodbye and thanks and leg it back to transport came.

All that remained were a few short pauses for a few further snaps mid-scurry as I began to make my way home again.

  2. Ah…nice post bringing back memories. Transportes del Norte. I don’t think I ever took one of these buses, but saw them on the highway when we drove in to, or out of, Mexico when I was a child. The name always evoked some kind of longing in me; I always wanted to be on one of these buses riding the roads of Mexico.

  3. as amazing as the pyramids are, Lonely Planet chose to make no mention of them in the guide to Mexico I used in 1985!! sorted it in following editions though, Got a couple of pictures of Izamal on my blog.
