Walking today through the Zocalo, I met two wonderful guys who kindly shared with me about their life. Its amazing how even under the circumstances, they still smile at life….
He was alcoholic for 40 years, and has been clean for the last 15. Now works cleaning pools and shoes.
He lost both legs on a work accident 10 years ago, and since then, has been asking for money near the zocalo and surrounding areas. Travels every day 6 hours from home to get to the Zocalo, (3 coming, and 3 getting back).
