Lindsey and I turn the other way when we see them sneaking food in the late afternoon.

It has some details of a deaf school roughly photocopied onto it, with (surprise!) a list of donations - none of them below 2000 rupees - that he has collected. For some financial perspective, the four tickets to Kandy cost us less than 800 rupees. He got 100 rupees and when he started sign-complaining, a flea in his useless ear.
We have caught the slow ...
