The Royal Mile at Edinburgh is full of street artists and some can attract quite a crowd. I also saw two people greeting each-other where one told the other, “Hi you professionally overqualified street beggar.” And then they affectionately went on to hug each-other! I wonder what makes these people tick? Why do they do it? Are they really glorified street beggars? What do you think? I obviously understnd very little of it, only sure that they make the place quite colorful and vibrant.
PS. I am back now.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
