This is a very regular sight in Goa.
There are many many beggars, it seems on every street corner there's another one with a hand outstretched.
A lot like this woman are just old.
But some are limbless and a lot have withered limbs from Polio.
Every one you see pulls at your heart strings simply because we are not used to this sight in the UK.
I think this is the side of third world countries I dont like.
