Out: Here there is a three-street intersection, so the feeling outside the stop is a little more open than usual. The area is still definitely Hispanic, and there are Ecuadorian food stands right near the stop (see photo); smells tempting. Employment and immigration establishments abound over here, and there is also another truck from Medanzas.
There’s also a Bangladeshi grocery here. The streets here are pretty busy at this time. The housing is primarily tenement-style, in brick. On my way back into the train I bought an elote from the Ecuadorian food stand; this is an enormous ear of corn that’s been slathered with butter, cream, and cheese. It’s so rich I can only eat a quarter of it before tossing it…but it definitely tasted good!
