Rush hour in Mexico City

The Atlantic recently had a great photoessay called Inside Mexico City’s Chaotic Underground Rush Hour.  Driving in Mexico City is always treacherous, but things come to an absolute standstill during rush hour, which seemed to expand every year we were there.  Apparently things aren’t much better on the subway, which 4 million people ride every day, making it the second busiest metro in North America behind NYC.

The photos were taken by a Spanish photographer named Héctor Mediavilla. Here are 2 of my favorite:
