I am now at home. On Monday evening, my flight from Houston left on time and landed in Cleveland twenty minutes ahead of schedule. In Mexico City, Alejandro is doing well after his operation, and today he will have his stitches removed.
I still have several entries to write about my trip. You may remember that Alejandro and I took the aerial cable car across the Mexico City borough of Ixtapalapa. After doing a round trip on the "cablebús", we then took another new addition to the city's public transport system, "el trolebús elevado"... the elevated trolley. The route, which begins at the same location as the "cablebús", follows an elevated road dedicated exclusively to the trolley. The buses have retractable poles which connect to overhead electrical wires when in transit.
The trolley travels 4.5 miles through Iztapalapa with seven stations along the way. Although not suspended high in the air like the "cablebús", you look down on the poor district.
