really admirable that this hampered old couple had shouldered burden and stress of a bus or an air trip - they seemed to be dutch - only for some days of sightseeing. they were walking around alghero within the context of a guided tour group. although i haven't seen any smiles playing on their lips they for sure enjoyed the experiences they had gained in this historic city.

really pesky that this beggar-woman bothered the two of them. i indeed appreciate poverty and starvation of the immigrants but i'm not willing to accept a mafia-like rip-off - we met the lady later in the bus: her supposed baby was a doll.

fortunately the tourists had summed up the situation - they gave the beggar the cold shoulder.
