Mexican people are incredibly resourceful but some of the things they do puzzle me. It is a case simply of a completely different way of thinking and there are times when I feel there are things I will never understand.
On Sundays and holidays, men in wheelchairs and on crutches are positioned right in the middle of the road selling candies and nuts. The money they raise through their sales gives them a small income.
I have never seen this in any other country I have visited and would wager that in Canada it would be frowned on These men sit in the sun for a whole day in their wheelchairs in the middle of traffic. I often say to Humberto that if they didn’t need a wheelchair before doing their unusual sales duty they might need one after.
I can’t see this unusual approach in encouraging the disabled to earn a living working n many countries. In Mexico it seems to work though and I guarantee that next Sunday the wheelchairs with their occupants will be out there on the road working again in the unforgiving heat.
