Bilingual beggars.

I realize that there are any number of ways that a person can find themselves begging and living on the streets and that their former circumstances could have been anything. In spite of this fact I find myself making assumptions about beggars, and some of them aren’t good.

The first time I came across a bilingual beggar was in Holland and I couldn’t believe it. I’ve heard my own voice on tape and think that his English sounded more clear than mine(my first language is Tahsis Patois šŸ™‚ ). We spoke for a minute and at the time I just couldn’t wrap my head around the idea that a fellow who spoke two languages was begging on the street, but I was just an ignorant kid.
