One afternoon, while we were walking the busy streets, I saw this brightly dressed “young girl” with white makeup like that of a geisha except that she wasn’t Japanese. I wanted to take her photo until she volunteered for the photo to be with me. I asked my friend to take my photo with her. Then, she posed with my friend. As we said “grazie mille” to her, the pretty young girl acted not so pretty. At this point, I knew it. We’ve been had!
Then, I laughed and thought to myself ‘let bygones be bygones. Live and let live.’
Another simple lesson learned.
