At the Einstein Metro Stop, Santiago, Chile

Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 733rd straight, illustrates a place where I felt very much at home. 🙂

Opened in 1975, the Santiago Metro is massive and clean, at least the stops I remember. It’s considered the most modern in Latin America –although that assessment might have been made prior to the April 2014 opening of the Panama City metro’s first line– and second in size only to Mexico City. Worldwide it’s the seventh most used on the planet.

As far as I know, this is the world’s only metro stop named for arguably the world’s most famous scientific mind of the 20th century. Is anyone aware of another?

Santiago, Chile, 18 March 2013
