On the Rue de Rosiers in front of the L’Aus du Falafel on a Sunday morning there are thousands of people walking around. In the middle of all this there was this woman (Eastern European?) asking for change to be placed in her small paper espresso cup. Most people avoid all eye contact but this older man decided to stop, face the woman, and look her straight in the face. They got into a short debate but the lady just kept smirking insisting he put some money in her cup. I kept wondering what he was thinking at this moment.
