"'e che c'hai cento lire?' was..." homeless people Tip by pollon

homeless people, Toronto: 5 reviews and 1 photos


'e che c'hai cento lire?' was the usual sentence you heard in Italy from drugs addicts begging you for a few coins and most of beggars anyway have done a job of it more than asking for a real need so at first I must admit I didn't pay too much attention to beggars on the street BUT after seeing one of them putting all his small cent coins at a counter for a hot soup, I felt really terribly thinking of me on holiday and enjoying the town shops and I began to give always some of my coins for another soup or whatever because if even later on I was explained by a Canadian that these people often 'choose' to live in such a way, I think there must not be very happy reasons beyond it...
