City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Little girl

This little girl is very sweet and you are already asking yourself why is she sitting on the pavement! Well, sad as it is she is a beggar, not homeless, not without family but a little girl working on the street. Very very sad.
I don’t think kids should ever ever be send on the street to earn money.

It is always sad to see kids in this situation.

That is so sad. She sweet but so skinny. What can we say, life is hard and unfair sometimes.

yes very sad plight indeed. In my country we have them child beggars too but not here in Akita City. Never seen one, nor a homeless person. Hope its like that everywhere!

enjoy the rest of the week!

I wasnt sure what to say when I saw this - if I was there, I think I would want to find out if she has a family, if she was hungry and wanted food or juice or if I should call someone from the humane services to find her a loving home hmmmmm - its definitely not an ez sight - so young and a long life to live in this manner - surely there is hope somewhere in the near future.

Seeing a young life, such as hers, in such condition is more than sad. Too many countries, including my own, neglect their children in far too many ways, some obvious and some subtle.

thank you all for stopping by. kids are so precious and yet they are sometimes treated badly.

Olivier - in a way yes she did pose for me, the kids love to be photographed, don't they!

It is hard to understand why there are people in the world who have more than enough wealth and even seem to lust for more whilst there are those such as this poor girl who have it so tough. This girl looks sweet. Sadly, her eyes seem to be saying that her soul hurts. She looks almost in tears. The photo is particularly poignant.
