In 2009 Feike de Jong walked the entire perimeter of Mexico City to capture the strange scenery of its fringes. The 800-km trek took him 51 days.
These two Guardian articles tell the story of his trip:
- Cockfights in the edgelands: the man who walked Mexico City’s perimeter
- The very edge of a city: Mexico City’s deepest hinterlands – in pictures
The author’s ebook Limits: On Foot Along the Edge of the Megalopolis of the Valley of Mexico, with the full story and more images, is due to be released later this year.
