Russian Boy Asking For Food
This boy was in St. Petersburg. I will never forget him because this tiny boy, maybe 2 or 3 was grabbing on to my leg and begging for food. His mother was smiling and standing about 10 feet away from him. I was asked many, many times on the street in Moscow and St. Petersburg for money by children!! Even though he was speaking Russian, I knew what he needed and wanted. My bus was leaving at that moment, so I had to run crying to my bus and be lectured by my professor not to give money to beggars. I will never forget this child.
