I have meant to do a blog post on the issue of child beggars in Turkey. Any one who has come to Turkey on holiday would have most certainly experienced the heart-aching and often manipulative, encounter with a child beggar. In this vlog, I don't show the child beggar, but you do hear the 'conversation'. It is heart-aching for me because foreigners are always always targeted and because of that, we are always warned not to give. True, many child beggars are put in this position by their parents who use them as emotional bait. Some, as in this video, whenever they can recognise a foreigner will automatically assume the role of a child beggar, even when wearing 24 carat gold bracelets, chains and when carrying the latest iphone model. You see the conundrum?
