We entered the end phase of our year-long backpacking journey from the “end of the world” in Ushuaia towards North America. My partner and I could not ignore the loud calling of Mexico City. As street-photo and film camera enthusiast my internal radar was tuned to places selling used gear along our way. Mexico City did not disappoint in this regard. Besides visiting various collector shops in the center I went to see flea markets in remote parts of the city.
