A short video inside a 7-11 to talk about how Coca-Cola is cheaper than bottled water here. Considering that we don't drink water from the faucet here it's in my mind a bit of a big deal and really kind of silly all at the same time.
Mexicans here ADORE Coke, to the extent that Texas adore, I don't know...Texas. It's pretty much a food group and at any given moment you're able to see a six year old child walking down the road from the corner store with a 3-liter of Coke in hand to take back to his family waiting for dinner. That in itself was shocking to me when I first came here, but now I'm just excited for my own kid to turn 6. ;)
Water, the bottle to the far right is a 12oz and costs 11 pesos.
A variety of soda pops, all cheaper than water and all (delicious) sugar filled.
Aaand the Coke. Yummy glass bottled Coke, a full 6 pesos cheaper than the water. In total costing about .40 cents USD for glass bottle and around .80 cents USD for plastic.
There you have it, we live in Crazy-Town.
