Sonora Witchcraft Market, Mexico City, Mexico

97-Mexico

Stomach ache? There’s a cure for that. Broken arm? There’s a cure for that. The worst case of traveller’s diarrhoea known to man? There’s a cure for that, too – and you’ll find it at the Sonora Witchcraft Market, one of the world’s most bizarre shopping experiences. Forget about the placebo effect; rub a human skull on your forehead and eat a tablespoon of dried bat’s wing to cure your migraine. Down with the flu? Mixing rattlesnake skin into your tea will cure you. The Sonora Witchcraft Market may sound spooky, and while it can be, it’s also a whole lot of fun to explore.
