Fortunately, Line 6 of the Metrobus, the most recently completed line, passes just a couple blocks from the house. As with most of the Metrobus lines, the bus stops are built in the middle of the avenue, and to each side are lanes reserved for the bus.
After returning to the house, and putting the groceries away, I then decided to take a walk around the neighborhood.
Alejandro lives in a section of the city known as San Juan de Aragón which is in the northern part of the city about half way between the airport and the Basilica of Guadalupe.
It is not an elegant or beautiful part of Mexico City, but is more typical of the vast bulk of the city than the areas with which the typical tourist is familiar.
One of the commercial streets of the neighborhood is Camino San Juan de Aragón (not to be confused with Calzada San Juan de Aragón which is the thoroughfare along which the Metrobus runs). The street is lined with all sorts of small businesses, from auto repair shops to opticians to corner grocery stores. Many of them are little hole-in-the-wall establishments.
It is not an especially large market, but it has the typical variety of stalls selling food, clothing, housewares and many other products. As always, the produce stands are the most colorful.
Although the street is open to vehicular traffic, it is the pedestrians who pretty much control the street.
Carry-out chicken (pollo) establishments are very popular. KFC does exist in Mexico, but I didn't see one in this neighborhood.
A number of times Alejandro and I have gone to this bakery for bread and pastries.
But during my walk, I came upon this pastry shop which looked quite tempting.
The menu posted outside of this little corner restaurant made me hungry. They had all sorts of tamales and crepes.
