Calm persists

I went in to the city yesterday to attend a conference at UNAM. People in the market stalls are back to watching soccer and novelas and Reggaeton videos. Subway car hawkers are back to touting a promotional offer for miracle cream (smells like Vicks Vapo Rub but does so much more at only twice the price). Was there an election on Sunday?

Students at the faculties of humanities, history, law, and political science are waiting for the internal bus to take them to the metro, reading, flirting, practicing soccer ball control. Was there an election on Sunday?

Today I am at the cibercafe across from UAEM in Toluca. Students are playing basketball, flirting, downloading songs. Was there an election on Sunday?

The morning streets have women walking their uniformed children to school (the last week before many are off on summer vacation) and tanker trucks delivering natural gas. Was there an election on Sunday?
