We had brought with us to Peru lots of goodies -- toys, crayons, pens, etc. -- to hand out to the beggar children that we were told to expect. In the final analysis, though, we actually had a hard time giving away all the stuff we brought. On the last day, we had a giveaway bonanza, passing out gobs of stuff to people even if they weren't asking.
We stalked this cute old woman for several blocks before we ran her down. Midori struck up a conversation with her before she handed her a pack of goodies. It turns out that she's 105 years old!
