A 20-station metro Line 12, or Golden Line, is expected to open this summer, cutting in half a commute of more than four hours a day by bus or car for Tlahuac's residents. Few people in this semi-rural borough deny its benefits. But for many, the metro's arrival is also a sign that the slow rhythms of their unique little piece of Mexico City, already fading, soon will come to an end. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)
