- off to Mannheim...



Nights stayed: 3
Amount earned: € 60
Things that made it all worth it:

That sharp dressed business man striding past with his cell phone slows down and smiling a huge grin mouths along with the song "don´t worry, be happy" after going a ways has to turn around and brings me back a euro.

That pretty girl who walks by and starts swinging to the music, goes into a shop, comes back later (still swaying) an with a shy grin slides in a few coins.
