La Señora que bajaba
I was walking down the block calmly . I say "down" because Moquegua is not a flat city and this was one of many sloping streets. Well ... I was walking down the block calmly when I hear a call from behind: "Sir ... Sir!". Because now I have a beard i am more often called "Sir" instead of "boy", so I thought i was being called, so I turned to see what happened ... and it was a lady who hurried down the street in search of a man, apparently drunk, who was a few meters behind me. When she reached him, she touched his shoulder and said, with that cute and tender accent from the women of the peruvian highlands: "Sir, you forgot your change of 50 cents".
