Day 7 - the 'Corner Store'
|The OXXO, which is a block from our house|
In Mexico most everyone lives within a short walk from an OXXO - which is the Mexican version of our Canadian 7-11. They have your basic needs, food items, fruit and vegetables, milk, eggs, snacks, etc. You can also pay all your utility bills at the OXXO, and you can buy time for your cell phone here. Another alternative, in most cases, is a 'Ma & Pa', or a family owned and operated corner store, which often has similar things.
