Walking vending machines

There is nothing better on a beautiful day than sitting in one of the thousands of plazas and parks across Mexico. But, as you sit there, you may feel the need for a cigarette, gum or candy. Relaxed? Don’t want to move to get what you need?  Stay put! Every plaza will have roaming vendors with wooden boxes in the form of shelves filled with candies, gums and even cigarettes. You can even buy individual cigarettes in case you don’t want to drop pesos on a full pack! Sadly, some of these vendors are children trying to make money for the family. Instead of running to a chain store, such as OXXO, you may want to support these street vendors who spend long hours in the plazas and surrounding streets trying to make a living.
