I have had several encounters with this woman while in Paros, Greece. And today, from a distance, I managed to snap her picture. She was about to pounce on the man beside her to ask for money. I’m not sure if he gave her any. She made a pitch to two more people. I don’t know if they parted with their money either. Then, as she headed towards me, I turned slightly to the left to avoid her. However, I felt a slight tug on my red singlet and she had my attention. I looked into her eyes and realised they were perhaps the saddest eyes I’d seen in a long time. A wonderful act, but no, I still didn’t budge. How much money can someone give to people you know nothing about? Beside, something seemed to be wrong.
