A STATION, TONS OF FEELINGS

... I love public transportation ... whatever it is ... bus ... metro ... ferry ... cable cars ... trucks ... airplanes ... trains ... and one of the places that are able to fascinate me the most are the stations ... it is such a melting pot of humanity ... hope ... rush ... dreams ... sadeness ... smells ... poverty ... fast food ... that fascinate me more than any other place ...the other day while I was waiting for my friend Andrea in the the MILAN TRAIN CENTRAL STATION ... I toook some pictures ... this station was built between the two World Wars ... in the fascist period in Italy ... very efficient architecture ... a kind of architecture that I like (only the architecture ...:D) ... the most difficult picture to take was the one to the homeless ... sad to see a person in that situation ... I gave him some change like I normally do ... I am never sure if I am doing the right thing ... that is one of the tons of feelings and thoughts I felt during the half hour I spent in the station ... ... almost forgot ... last but not least ... this is the way the station ... this incredible box of humanity ... looks like from the outside ...

I think you did it all right. There can be only 2 scenarios either that homes less person will do party using the money you gave it to him, but just imagine if that person is really hungry and have no other option left to survive but to beg. Let’s not be judgmental when it comes to giving. :D
