How to get
to the CIC-IPN,
the place where Alexander Gelbukh's office is
A. Gelbukh's room is number 3, on the first floor (the one above the ground floor), North wing, Eastern side. You can ask anybody to show you the room, or call 56544 from the entrance.
Here is how to get to the place. Please PRINT OUT THIS PAGE and the map before you go. Below is a photo of the building and a site map. Use the [+] and [-] buttons in the map to zoom in/out. See also a full-screen map.
Here are instructions on how to get there by:
Subway: By the Yellow line, go North to the terminal station Politécnico. There are two exits, choose the one to "Calle Diana". Walking along the car circulation by the large street (Eje Central), pass one building (car dealer Ford MYLSA, a glass building), turn right, and enter the IPN Institute territory gate. The nearest 3-floor red (orange, pink) building is the CIC.
Taxi: The taxi from the Central zone should cost about 50 pesos (US$5). Go north by Av. Eje Central Cien Metros until the Subway station "Politecnico," and you are almost here; you can continue on foot or in taxi. Pass the Subway station, pass one building (car dealer Ford MYLSA, a glass building), turn right by Av. Venus, and enter the IPN territory gate. The nearest 3-floor pink building is the CIC. You can print out the following text in Spanish and show it to the taxi driver:
"Vaya al Norte por Eje Central Cien Metros hasta el Metro Politécnico, páselo, pase un edificio mas (tienda de automóviles seminuevos Ford Mylsa --sólo un edificio, ¡no más!), dé vuelta a la derecha (por la calle Venus), entre en el territorio del IPN (Instituto Politécnico Nacional), vaya al edificio de color rosa de 3 pisos."
Car: Take North Ave. Eje Central Cien Metros. Pass the large bus terminal "Terminal de Autobuses del Norte" (to the right from you). Pass the tower of the Mexican Oil Institute – Instituto Mexicano de Petroleo (to the left from you) and the Instituto de Petroleo Subway station. When crossing Eje 5 Norte (Montevideo), move to the right lane of Ave. Eje Central Cien Metros. Pass the Politécnico Subway station and go slowly. Pass one building – the Ford car dealer MYLSA (a glass building), turn right into Venus street, and enter the IPN gate. Leave some personal identification document at the entrance gate to IPN. The nearest building is CIC, a pink square 3 floor building.
Bus: There are many buses and microbuses that go along Av. Eje Central to the Metro Politécnico Subway station. Ask the driver to tell you when the bus arrives to that station. Then walking along the car circulation by the large street (Eje Central), pass one building (car dealer Ford MYLSA, a glass building), turn right, and enter the IPN Institute territory gate. The nearest 3-floor pink building is the CIC.
Metrobus: From the center of the city, you can take Metrobus North at Insurgentes street (to the direction Indios Verdes). Get out at La Raza, and from there take either taxi (some US$2.5 / 25 pesos) or Subway (yellow line) to Subway terminal station Politecnico. See above on how to get from Subway station to the CIC building. You will need to buy a plastic card to get to the Metrobus; the card can be re-charged in a special machine at the bus station. The card may (or may not) be sold at the bus station; ask at the hotel where to buy a Metrobus card.
