PICT6802ac Very Poor Little Postcards Seller
He has been walking a long time near me singging desperately with a very frail voice 'Buy me a postcard, buy me a postcard......'; I had already bought postcards and was sad not to have any more coins in my purse! So here he looks at me with discouragement and incomprehension alas thinking that I am unsensible to his poverty! I had banknotes but our guide said not to give more important sum as this child, exploited by his parents who don't send him to school, should become corrupted by this kind of gift!
