Little Kangaroo

In a country like my dear Mexico, people often have to find a way of living, a way of surviving. Innovation in commerce rises from discovered opportunity. And thus up to 60% of its people make a living of the informal – shadow – economy.
Kids and teenagers (not so commonly adults) walk the streets with a box hanging from their necks – and thus their nickname: canguritos. Buy a loose cigarette, a lollie, a mint or a chewing gum. Find them everywhere. Anytime. Or find them in plazas with their wooden boxes on a stand. But always there, fighting, surviving, making their living.
