There were not many tourists this day at the Swayambunath or Monkey Temple in Kathmandu and the girl did not have a good income.
She was not very persistent, which was a nice change.
I still do not know what to do with beggars, even though I am not rich, I have a lot more money than they do. I always buy stuff from children on the streets, somehow I hope that it will teach them that they can earn money buy doing something and not just by asking. But many children maybe do not have the possibility to give you something in return, should you give them money?
