This Audio Blog was recorded on location in Mexico City, Mexico. Be sure to pick up the Lesson Guide to see the English translation of this transcript: El Metro El metro actualmente cuenta con nueve líneas que atraviesan de lado a lado la ciudad. Las autoridades han hecho un excelente trabajo en lo que se refiere a ingeniería y diseño. En cada estación de correspondencia puedes encontrar exposiciones artísticas, museográficas y fotográficas, y si no tienes mucho tiempo para mirar, por lo menos verás de reojo cosas agradables. Entrar al metro es toda una experiencia. Muy temprano, a las 5:00 de la mañana, separan a hombres de mujeres y niños, y al mediodía es muy probable que: 1) no puedas entrar; 2) no puedas salir; 3) te bajes donde no quieres, y 4) entres al vagón que no quieres entrar. ¡Qué experiencia! Sin embargo, es fascinante el mundo comercial que hay dentro del metro. Como en los aeropuertos, encuentras tiendas de ropa, librerías, puestos de periódicos y de comida; pero también hay otras tiendas que están más adentro, en las profundidades, donde puedes encontrar más mercancías y más comida a un mejor precio. Además, durante tu viaje por lo menos te vas a encontrar con tres vendedores de dulces, chocolates, CD’s, plumas, bolsas, hasta con un cantante si tienes suerte, ¡y todo esto puede ocurrir aún cuando viajes sólo dos estaciones! A pesar de todo, el metro es el transporte más rápido y seguro que puedes encontrar en la bella Ciudad de México.

Hola Terrence,


Sorry for the late reply, there was a technical issue that now is fixed.

"poniente" is the same as "oeste" and "oriente" is the same as "este".

Sigamos practicando!

Nobody wants to answer my question that I posed almost two weeks ago?

Hola Lee,


Thank you for your comment.

Both verbs don't need to be subjective mood, only the firsts that is stating the mood. The one after is stating a situation.

It can really confusion, but let's keep practicing.

I have a question about the sentence that ends "es muy probable que 1) no puedas entrar; 2) no puedas salir; 3) te bajes donde no quieres; y 4) entres al vagón que no quieres entrar." Shouldn't the verb "querer" also be in the subjunctive both times that it is used in this sentence, since you are describing events that may or may not happen, which requires the subjunctive in general? So those parts of the sentence should read "te bajes donde no quieras" and "entres al vagón que no quieras."

Un placer de aprender más de la ciudad de México. Hagame el favor de dar una idea del tamaño de la red. Siempre se oye de que La Ciudad De Mexico sea gigantesco. Es que la red del metro alcanza en todas partes. Se puede decir que la voz y el accento de gayne gusta.

Bobbie P. B,

Here you go...


The Metro


Nowadays, the metro counts on nine railroad lines that go through

the city. The authorities have done an excellent

engineering and design job. You could find art exhibitions, art

collections and pictures in every train station, and if

you don’t have time to stop and look, at least you could take a

brief glance at beautiful things.



Just going into ‘el metro’ (train station) is a whole experience.

Early in the morning, at 5:00 a.m., the men are separated form the

women and kids, at noon it’s very probable that: 1) you cannot go in 2) you cannot leave 3) go out in the wrong station, 4) go into the wrong train. What an experience!


However, the commercial world that lives into ‘el metro’ is fascinating. Just like in the airport, you could find, clothing stores, bookstores, ‘puestos de periódicos y de comida’ (small places, not even a store, where you could buy newspapers or food.), but there are more stores if you go further, in the depths, where you could find more goods and food with a better prices.



Besides, you will find at least three merchants of candies,

chocolates, CD’s, ballpoint pens, bags, and even a singer if you are

lucky.



And all of this could happen even when you moving form one station

to another!


In spite of all this, ‘el metro’ is the fastest and safest means of transport that you could find in beautiful México city.
