■ MEXICO CITY: I’ve gone shopping in some wild markets in my day. From the Haputale market in Sri Lanka where the Yes Man would not leave me alone, to Cusco’s central market in Peru and Mumbai’s Dharavi slum. Iv’e seen it all…. or so I thought. Coz never have I seen a a market like the one I stumbled upon today in the centre of Mexico City.
Sprawled out in a traffic intersection which is very much open for cars and motorbikes at all times, this market has everything from counterfeit perfumes to face-masks, dumbells and a live mariachi band.
But that isn’t what makes it the most entertaining market in the world. The fact that it can all vanish in the span of 20 seconds is responsible for that…..
