Jace Walks to the Bus Stop in Marfil, Near Guanajuato, Mexico

In this video, Jace walks toward the bus stop near our house in Marfil, a small community near Guanajuato. He has to take the public buses downtown to his Spanish classes each day for the first 3 weeks of his stay. It sound easy enough except that Guanajuato’s streets aren’t laid out in a grid system. There are extensive tunnel networks across the city and the surface streets are laid out like a pile of yarn. To add to the challenge, the bus system is difficult. Locals can’t even explain how it works or how to find the right buses to go to the right places. Jace knows that he has to look for the word “Centro” to find a bus that goes downtown, but he has to be able to identify where he is to know when to get off the bus (not as easy as it sounds in a new place where everything mostly looks like everything else).

Two days before, Jace found his way downtown by himself on foot (a 2 1/2 hour walk round trip), but finding his own way using a bus would be more difficult. So Lydian and I followed him on his first attempt at getting downtown using public transportation. He didn’t know we were filming him on this stretch.
