  • Description

    AS THE 1968 OLYMPIC GAMES DRAW TO A CLOSE IN MEXICO, A LAST-MINUTE RUSH FOR SOUVENIRS IS KEEPING LOCAL BAZAAR SELLERS AND STALLHOLDERS BUSY. THE GAMES WILL END ON SUNDAY WHEN THE CLOSING CEREMONY WILL BE HELD.

    WITH MOST OF THE GENERAL SPORTING EVENTS OVER, VISITORS AND COMPETITORS HAVE FOUND TIME OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS TO CATCH UP ON THEIR SOUVENIR HUNTING.

    MARKET PLACES AND BAZAARS IN MEXICO CITY HAVE BEEN THE MAIN TARGET OF THE GIFT SEEKERS. HERE THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BUY UP THE SMALL TRINKETS AND ARTICLES TO REMIND THEM OF THEIR VISIT TO MEXICO.

    IF THEY WISH, THEY CAN EVEN BUY A TICKET FOR THE OLYMPIC GAMES - OR FOR THE FEW DAYS IT HAS LEFT TO RUN.

    MOST OF THE COMPETITORS WHO ARE STILL AT THE GAMES ARE EXPECTED TO LEAVE SHORTLY AFTER SUNDAY'S CLOSING CEREMONY.

    FOR THE MEXICAN BAZAAR SELLERS, IT WILL BE A CASE OF BUSINESS AS BEFORE. BUT IN THE MEANTIME, THEY ARE MAKING THE MOST OF THE BIG SOUVENIR BUYING SPREE.
