Route: Colonia Santa Maria la Rivera/Tlatelolco to Capultitlan/Industrial
I had only one participant for the whole day. We talked for hours and walked several kilometers. This is something I did not expect before starting this project, that someone would spend so much time with me. But there have been several storytellers who walked more than a block with me and shared more than a story. They shared their time, their city and a little peek into their lives.
At this point, I am one kilometer from the end of Insurgentes. This is hard for me to believe. It’s been a little over a month since I began this journey. As of today there are 59 stories, that means 59 people willing to take time out of their day to walk with me and tell me a story. Together, we have walked 28 kilometers, around 17 miles, along a busy avenue through the heart of the city. They have shared a love for their city and country, and a generosity of heart and spirit that has warmed me to my core.
