Metro Mexico City

In the metro we often see itinerant traders getting on, who loudly offer goods of daily need for sale or tell their stories, begging for some money afterwards.

In order to give this situation a different meaning we try to reverse the way of the money from the passenger to the »ambulante«:

Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I am an artist from Europe and thanks to a scholarship I have the opportunity of living in Mexico-City for six months. I like the city very much and so far I have only had good experiences with the people.
That’s why I want to return something.
Please accept these five pesos. Only five pesos!
