ANDREAS

Andreas was a homeless man I met in Budapest. He spoke four languages fluently, and regularly followed soccer matches by watching them through the window of a pub he slept outside of. After he told me his life story, he refused my offer of money. He told me 'Avoir des moments humains - ceci vaut plus que tout l'argent au monde. Merci de m'avoir écouté. Au revoir'. (Human moments are worth more than any money in the world. Thank you for listening to my story, and goodbye.)
