An Airport is Born

Mexico City needs a new airport like it needs more people, but somebody managed to convince someone else that they needed to spend $9.15 billion (an amount which will of course double or treble, as with any other public procurement project) to build a fancy new airport, bringing yet more people to a crowded, polluted, smoggy city of more than 8 million.

Even worse, this is what the architects came up with:

mexico_city_airportI certainly won’t fly to an airport that looks like a woman giving birth. I’ll rather take the train.

    And if you look at it from a different angle, it looks like the Eye of Sauron.

    I have a question, I went to see my family lawyer about the visitation right to see my child and he told me that if your wife went to court first without you to know and filed that your violent man,the court can decide to you not to have visitation right.my question is here in Germany court can decide without investigation concerning these false allocation.
    Please can you clarify this law.

      Perhaps Spain can sell their 2 abandoned (and modern) airports to Mexico? They can ‘ship’ it over in pieces. And the great thing is, the signs are all already in Spanish! That would add about a billion Euros to the flagging Spanish economy, and Mexico would get a bargain!

        (Not sure what happened, was not meant to be a reply to ‘Bob’s’ post. (As irrelevant to the topic as it seems!)

      • That’s actually a great idea! Alternatively, Spain might even donate the airports as a form of reparations for all the massacres after 1492.

    • 1) I don’t think this has anything to do with the new airport for Mexico City.
      2) You have been asking quite a lot of questions now, and I have answered all of them so far. I think it’s time for you to mail me one of the books from my wishlist as a sign of appreciation.

    Looks like an Inca crop circle! Or they are trying to communicate with space in symbols. Would be interesting to see the space station view of this.

    Nice to see where all of Sinaloa’s “look the other way and focus on our competitors” pesos are going.
