Gypsy woman that works as a toilet cleaner in front of the public toilet she services

I came across this gypsy woman in Tryavna, Bulgaria, as I was walking to my car. People like her, who service public restrooms (clean them, take the tax that is charged to use the facilities, etc.) are a common sight in Bulgaria. However, this lady was the guardian of quite the stately toilet! It was lavishly decorated and had random humorous and vulgar sayings written on the walls. I asked if I could take a picture of the toilet walls and also of her, and she had nothing against it. She was quite nice and friendly, and had the most interesting eyes!
