Beggars belief

By GwailoAngMo
There are quite a few beggars in Venice, most of whom it seems are professionals. I have seen comments by residents relating how they beg, in agony, and shuffle about, but if they are late for the train they go like the clappers.

Iíve seen various men and women with dolorous looks, if they are not bent over like this, as we pass by, and yet they were all as happy as Larry when one day I passed them enjoying their al fresco lunch at a pozzo in the Campo San Geremia.

These people give those genuinely in need a bad name.

So hard to distinguish if you're a tourist I suppose? Certainly didn't impress the passer by.

Hope you are well Tim.

Best wishes,
