Begging In Portugal
This is a letter I got from my friend Eric who is in Portugal. He took the picture too.
"Like you, the gypsies in Portugal have some great angles. Sometimes they fuck with their kids´eyes and make them ask for change for glasses. There was one guy that was pretty slow (Forest Gump slow) who asked me for two euros for a cup of coffee, which is only 50 cents. I am impressed because he asked me for money in english. When I offered him my coffee, he didn´t want it. Then he started walking behind people asking them for two euros. He was completely ignored. While this was happening, a couple of kids were feeding the pigeons bread from the bakery. Christ! The rats with wings had more luck than him. Pan Handler, can you spare a banana suit to help this guy out? "
Eric's promised to send pictures of Portugalese Panhandlers soon. In the meanwhile can you spare me a couple of bucks to buy a second banana suit? God Bless.
