View from the Intracity Bus in Guanajuato, Mexico

Jace, a 14 year old from Nebraska, was trying to find his way from Marfil to Embajadoras in Guanajuato, Mexico. His mission for the day was to use the public bus system in Guanajuato to get from Point A to Point B, a task that sounds a lot easier than it really was. This particular bus had “Embajadoras” written on the window and Jace was excited because it seemed that the bus would take him directly Marfil to where he wanted to be, but instead, it took him CLOSE to where he wanted to be, to an unmarked location in a neighborhood called Pastita that’s really close to Embajadoras. And on top of that, this particular bus went primarily through tunnel systems under the city to get there. After 10 minutes underground he popped out into Pastita and then, 3 minutes later, before he could get his bearings the bus left the city center altogether. So we ended up in Cerro de los Leones on Panoramica, circling the city. With only 15 minutes left to get to class, Jace and I had to get off the bus in a random location some distance from the school and hoof it!
